You Are Worthy

none of us are beyond its reach,
those moments of self doubt
when the inner critic tells us
there is something lacking,
when it says we will surely fail,
when it says shhh – stay here
stay small
stay quiet lest you misspeak
stay isolated lest you be noticed
for who are you after all?

just love this foolish one;
notice it and love it
until it disappears
as all that is unreal must do.

your eternal being has all power,
and you have been worthy since birth.
walk out into the world
where your radiance
can be seen and felt.
you belong here.
