Love Letter to Myself

 

I’m proud of you
Your resounding wholeness
When the world wants you to believe you are broken.

I’m proud of you
How you embrace your divinity
And fuel your own fire to heights that make men tremble.

I’m proud of you
Your laughter like rich warm honey
Emanating from the core of your bleeding heart when you are in nought but your own company.

I’m proud of you
When you openly invite them to break you
So you can feel the raw humanity in that sorrow
And put yourself back together somehow more exquisitely complete than before.

I am so glad I finally figured out how to love you.
