I am Enough

I am enough

But sometimes I don’t realize that 

My imperfections define who I am

And often I may think that 

My body isn’t perfect 

And I have to realize that

I will never be perfect in the eyes of society

For I truly know that

Even when I try my hardest 

I was taught that I have to love myself

But I can’t, because 

I will never learn to love who I am

Even though I tell myself

I am Enough.
