I am enough

You cant change whats a part of you although i have tried.
My body was never thin enough, my imperfections I'd always hide.

I smiled when they said I was beautiful.
I laughed when they said I was great.
It took a long time to believe in their words.
I figured loneliness was my fate.

The boys I wanted didn't want me,
I was tossed,used and torn.
So many took me as a joke,
I crawled inside myself scared and forlorn.

My self-esteem had let me down,
my belief in myself was nil.
I didn't understand where I was headed,
Could not understood until......

I finally decided to believe in me,
I realized that i was worth so much.
This was when I could see through the storm,
When i aloud my soul to be touched.

I sometimes wish for money and love.
When time gets distressing and tough.
But I know that I will always love myself,
no matter what-

  I am Enough!
