In My Heart of Hearts…

In my heart of hearts,

I no longer want to be

Better than you

Smarter than you

Thinner than you


Prettier than you


Faster than you

Stronger than you

More accomplished than you

More creative than you


A better mother than you

A better friend than you


Better educated than you


ANYTHING more than you.

I want to walk this path

Side by side

In awe of who you are


In awe of what your gifts are


To see you only in love and light


With your beauty shining through

Just as you are.

And I want you to see me the same way.

For I really do love you

Just as you are.


I only thought I had to be better


In order for you to love me.

I drop this cloak of outshining at the gate.

It has been such a heavy burden,


An unnecessary burden

A self imposed burden.

Will you still love me


Being just as I am.

In my heart of hearts,

I know you will.
