Arise: a poem to girls everywhere

I wish you could know the true power of your being.

The divine light that shines

through your eyes every second of the day,

illuminating the world

with your essence.

You are enough.

No matter how many times people tell you differently.

No matter how many times you look in the mirror

and wonder why the hell

you were put on this earth

in the first place.

YOU are enough.

If I could only make this one promise to you

and have you believe it,

it would be enough.

Too many days have gone by where I,

where you,

feel as if no one can hear

the desperate whispers

of your soul,

Begging to be noticed.

Your soul is only asking for


to notice.

The outside world is not your gauge for acceptance.

Until you accept yourself,

the world will continue to disown you.

You are beautiful




Fucking amazing.

Anyone who tells you differently should not be a part of your tribe.

There is a magic essence

waiting to burst through

your cells

out of your soul,

To make your mark on the world.

Throw away your fear

and let it happen.

The world needs what you have to offer.

If you feel like there’s nothing valuable about you,

Check again.

Keep looking

and searching

and exploring

until you find it.

You are worth the effort.

How sad a world

it would be

without your unique


Do not deprive us of your special gifts.


are what we’ve been

waiting for.
