I am enough.

Despite what society tells me,

in terms of beauty and body and being,

I am enough.

Even though traditional values say my skin’s too dark,

my dreams too big,

and my submissiveness too nonexistent,

I am enough.


I am strong enough,

powerful enough,

willful enough,

determined enough,

intelligent enough,

blessed enough,

respectful enough,

realistic enough,

and willing enough

to be anything I’d like.


I think that, in life,

being “you” enough

is the best anyone can be.
