I Am Enough-Version 2

*I’ve had some suggestions about a few of my pieces from a friend.  I’m taking those pieces and reworking them.  So you may see some things here that look familiar.  I feel this new version of I Am Enough flows better and makes more sense.  I hope you enjoy it.  ❤  

You told me to toss away

the masks

 

I showed

my true self

 

You adored the sass

and the fight

 

After the mask

was cast aside

 

What remains?

 

You chipped away

at my shields

 

I thought they

would keep me

safe

 

The shields were

left behind

 

Walls

were bought down

too

 

Brick by brick

they fell away

 

The dark corner

I had once

retreated to

 

Is now bathed

in a glorious

light

 

What remains?

 

What remains is a

Stong

Confident

Woman

 

I no longer

need

the shadows

 

I now appreciate

the fight

and the sass

inside me

 

I stand

proudly

in the light and

take what

is rightfully

mine

 

I like who I am

 

and

 

I am

 

Enough

    I absolutely LOVE this! We can only bathe in the light after tearing down our walls. And that ending is superb! Great structure.
