You Are Everything

You are not the things that have hurt you,

for they are there to reveal your true strength.

You are not the things that bind you,

for they are there to show your resilience.

You are not the things you worry about,

for they are there to remind you to let go.

You are not the words of others,

for they are there to show your capacity to forgive.

You are not the limiting thoughts you think,

for they are there to challenge you to be more.

You are not the fears that hold you back,

for they are there to uncover your courage.

You are nothing and yet you are everything,

for all of it reveals your Truth.
