I See You

I don’t see you for what you are not

I see you for who you are





I don’t see you for what you are not

I see you for who you are

I worry that you worry that you have to be perfect

It’s only required that you be you


You require a standard for yourself you’d never apply to another

You accept all that walk in truth while not assuming this applies to you as well

You are mother, sister, mentor, teacher, friend…

You do them all well


Find peace in knowing all that you’ve accomplished

Though the struggle isn’t over, you know the way, you have the tools to deal with whatever comes your way

And most of all

Most of all

You have a circle

Friends and family that know you matter

People that owe you and those that just care

People that love you


For all that you have not, are not and might never be

You are rich in what you have done, what you will do and who you are

You are magic
