Making Amends with Yourself

I've called you
every name
in the book

fat, ugly, lazy,
stupid, worthless
not good enough

I've compared you
to everyone
I've come across

I am not sorry for this
but I am sorry
you do not know

there is always
going to be
someone smarter

someone prettier
someone skinnier
someone more talented

but no one could ever
carry the burdens
you've carried

no one could ever
move the mountains
you've moved

no one could ever
limit or compare
to your own inner strength

no one could ever be as
enough as you
I am not sorry that you are enough
