tell me...

tell me im good
tell me im worthy
tell me that my fears are unfounded
undaunted and unnecessary


tell me im beautiful
tell me im not ugly
tell me that i am not the monster
that i see when i look at myself

 

tell me that im ok
tell that i will be
tell me that all of the shit i am going through
is going to pass eventually

 

tell me im not fucking up
tell me its not beyond repair
tell me the things i do will not have
a lasting effect on us


tell me im worthy
tell me again that im good
tell me that my insecurities
are nothing for than simple uncertainties


tell me you love me
tell me you still love me
tell me you still love and need me
even though i have made it hard

this is so earnest, when feeling the guilt of Unproud behavior... and isn't this so human, to have been less than perfect... the grace, the best, is when we see it, know it, and grow from it.... which is a very difficult look in our own personal mirror. It isn't easy to show the less than perfect side of ourself to the public... I appreciate your candor.

Open yourself up to the world around you and you may begin to hear some of the things that you need to hear. It's not that they aren't being said... ♥
