I have been insecure most of my life. I was told that I was too dark. I’m terrified of the dark. I was told that I was too tall. I wished I was shorter. I was told that I would one day be fat and undesirable. I was told that I would never be enough. I have never really felt enough. Until….. One day, I met someone who looked past my pain, disguises, and excuses. One day, I met someone who loved the person behind the mask. How I fought them.. I tried not to care, but secretly, I did. They made me forget that I was insignificant. They made me feel like I mattered before it was a political slogan. I mattered to them. God knows they mattered to me. Like an abused animal seeking nourishment, although I didn’t completely trust what they were trying to do, I knew I needed what they were doing. I needed to be rebuilt. I needed to be edified. I needed to be needed too. Today, I stand strongly in both the majesty and strength of the sun. Thank you. I have been insecure most of my life. I’m not too dark. I’m just the right height. Even if I’m fat, I, too, deserve love. I am more than enough. If it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t be who I now am. Thank you. I don’t believe that seeds ever get an opportunity to marvel at the beauty of their gardens. I am nothing more than a flower in your garden. Thank you for helping me grow…..Patrick
