What I Wish for You

What I wish for you is that you could see your worth

Not from the tainted lens of a biased and cruel world

But from deep within yourself, for yourself.

What I wish for you is that you could start believing

That there is still hope hiding beneath the rubble

Of sudden heartaches and unexpected setbacks,

That what happened to you does not equate who you are

Nor does it exempt you from the taste of joy.

What I wish for you is that you could let go

Of the shoulds and the whys and what ifs

Because they do not matter anymore, dear soul,

Now matters. Here matters. Today matters.

What I wish for you is that you feel safeguarded

Fortressed and cradled even in the darkness

Loved and beloved exactly as you are.
