POETRY: Just…Enough

Do you ever feel like you’re not–smart, pretty, successful–enough?

This is a little poetry offering to  (and reminder of) the Source of love, creativity, and strength that lies within you.

Just…Enough

“Not… enough,”
Your demons swarm and hiss.
Pretty enough
Smart enough
Strong enough
ENOUGH!

Silently, the River flows on.
Time ripples and swirls
Around the fear, doubt and pain.

“Just remember,”
The wind whips and whispers.
Remember the mighty Oak
Nourished by Time
Lapping at its feet.
You are the Oak.

Remember
Remember who sits beneath the shade of your branches,
Looking up into your canopy with wonder and awe.

“Fear not”
Your soul, calm, remembers
Embrace imperfection
The knots of your trunk
Produce beautiful, seasoned planks,
Once sanded and finished.

It is enough that you
stand.
It is enough that you
survive.
It is enough for
today.

Nothing more
Nothing less
Just…enough.
