“Never Enough” – Poem

What will it take

For you to realise

That you have

Enough;

You are

Enough?

To travel across the world

And taste, see, smell, and feel

All that it has to give?

Is that enough?

To write and share

The pain and love

Inside.

To connect, shape, and

Enrich the world with words?

Is that enough?

To love and be loved,

To share and trust,

To intertwine and empower

In the bond of heart and

Soul?

Is that enough?

To have an endless collection

Of art, entertainment, and worlds

At your fingertips,

To inspire, influence, and enlighten?

Is that enough?

To be intelligent and yet

Ever-growing, ever-learning,

Open in the mind,

To let all the world’s knowledge

In?

Is that enough?

Is that enough,

For you?

You foolish girl,

Don’t you see?

All of these things,

Have been given to thee.

You are rich.

You are powerful.

You are strong.

You are loved.

You are safe.

You are smart.

You are beautiful.

You are abundant.

You are free.

So, what will it take

For you to be happy?

What,

I dare ask you,

Will be enough for you?

When will the seeking

And wanting

End.

Be careful,

My dear child,

For in your search,

You are running from

What you already have.

I’m afraid

For you.

Afraid that even

If you held the world and all its stars

In the palms of your hands.

It would never

Truly

Be

Enough.
