We never fully satisfy it

Thoughts of self compassion make it cringe

Often it deceives

Faultfinding limits our potential

Cuts off love and belonging in life

So scratch that-be free

There's something much more satisfying 

Highly worth our acknowledgement and chase

-Thoroughgoing love.

It calls us by name, proclaims value

Despite the shortcomings, we're treasured

Don't conform-stay true

People hustle for it, though own it

Embrace this truth, for we were set free

Here and now-receive
