I Am Enough




The light does not wish to be 
darkness.
The Finch does not wish to be 
an Eagle.
The thorn does not ask to
be the rose.
The sunrise does not wish to be
the sunset.
The lake does not wish to be
 an ocean.
The sun does not wish to be the
 moon.
Neither do I wish to be anyone
but
 myself.

    1. I am comfortable with myself. I am flawed and I am far from perfect but I like who I am. :)

  11. I come back to this phrase.... I am enough ... over and over again these days. It's so good in those moments when we know it to be true in the deepest part of us! {Is your son going to be at the game tomorrow??!!} {So excited for these Red Sox!}

  12. Accepting what is rather than what isn't is so important to realize. We tend to look at what we lack rather than what is really right with our worlds. Important reminder, Ayala.

  13. Loved this..self-acceptance is the path we all need to take. Enjoyed the comparison to all things natural accepting their plight..

  14. Oh, nice poem!
    It's wonderful to just "be" and like ourselves.
    So many do not and that is very sad.
    I think a lot of the problems that people face in life can relate to not being comfortable with oneself or not liking oneself.
    I really like your poem.
    And thank you for the kind words on mine, it was fun to write :)

  17. A lovely poem and a reminder that we can only
    be who we are and we should embrace our own
    creation.

  18. Absolutely wonderful. So well stated. This is a poem I think I will come back to when I need to be calmed down & reassured. :-)

  19. I love the sentiment and the nice, simple way you express it with such wisdom in this poem.

  20. Gorgeous, ayala. So much wisdom. I've always thought that when we are content with ourselves, we are content with the world.

  21. Be yourself. Everyone else is taken! (heard somewhere>)

  23. Positivity love this piece. One with self is what we all ought to aspire for.

  24. It seems they may be to busy living to even observe a self..

    I suppose humans are evolved that way too...

    But leisure time seems to make the me instead of the we's of the past IT seems....
