Girl, They Don’t Know Your Worth

Girl, They Don’t Know Your Worth

LISTEN
I promise you
That it’s getting better
Imagine driving
Thinking
Daydreaming
In LOVE
With some one new
With your life
With yourself
And realize
You are HAPPY
And not only happy
But astonishingly BLESSED
It’s all come together
Whoever hurt you
Is waking up today
At the same time
Realizing
How much better it used to be
When you were around
You are the light
The lavender fields
The volcano sunsets
That keep the rest of us going
You are hope
Don’t waste ANY time
Feeling sad about those
Who are infested with demons
Who are BLIND
You shine
You helped them more than you know
And the only reason
They made you feel low
Is because
You’re up

I was literally driving today on my way to teach yoga and realized that my present is so much better than my past. I was so happy that I felt bitter because of how I had allowed myself to be made to feel so low.

I kept saying yes to the wrong people and getting tangled up in the wrong situations over and over again. Until I hit the lowest of the lows: the breaking point: the self intervention: the collapse into despair.

It has been one year of processing through my own inner demons that was triggered, realizing that I am worth much more than the people around me were treating me as and saying NO over and over again because I am not going to take whatever I can get. I deserve to have my heart be cherished.

This poem was inspired by things people have said to me, things I’ve said to myself, and things I want to say to any woman whose worth has not been fully realized by the people around her.

Stay blessed x
