Because You Exist (a poem)

You are not enough.
You have no right.
You are not good.
You cannot do that.
You are not worthy.
You will never make it.

Are among the sinister lies
we tell ourselves;
we are told;
we buy;
we believe;
we live into;
we become.

These are nothing
but false narratives
that lead us away 
from our own 

Hear this truth
Because you exist
the universe
will never be
the same.
