My blessings overwhelm me
Why am I afraid of stepping out
further onto the fruitful branch?
Am I not content with what I have?
Is it not enough?
When I was small I was never enough
I never had enough
or was good enough
Those dissatisfactions came
from outside disapprovals
Now I am big and I surely have enough
It’s time to step out far onto the limb
to change, metamorphose the words...
For now, the “not enough” is not
about my dissatisfactions
It’s about natural evolution
of growth stages that follow each other
one level impatient to become the next
Changes that need expression
in my own personal world
It’s the next step and the next
along the journey of becoming who I already am
When I was small I was good enough ~
it’s just that no one ever told me
I was being who I needed to be at the time
And I am ‘enough’ for today
as I embrace the realization
that who I am is changing
~for there is always a new me waiting~
around the next dream
to be fulfilled in the next day
along my journey
I go on further into who I am to be
and that is what
I have to be:
where I already am
