-Rupi Kaur

Even if you are labelled as unworthy

even if you are dragged into the dark

even if you despise your own weakness

even if you are beaten

in body

in mind

in spirit

Even if your mind unravels

and you lose the beginning of you

There is a light somewhere

It may not be much light

It may be a spark as small as a grain of sand

Trust that light

Hold that light

It’s a beacon of hope

It’s just the beginning of a

new you
