Maybe I'm Ok As I Am

A poem by Layla Saad

Maybe this unexplained force
which takes me to the depths
of my darkness and pain
Is the same divine force
that gives me the capacity
to hold so much power and light.

Maybe my fears and anxieties
give me empathy and wisdom.

Maybe my dark days
help me shine brighter in the night.

Maybe my emotional wounds
teach me how to love right.

Maybe I'm not broken.
Maybe I don't need to be fixed.
