Necessary (a poem)

Take a moment
hear the universe say,
you are necessary
not when
     you know for sure;
not when
     you’ve finished that one task;
not when
     you are finally whole;
not when
     you have it figured out;
not when
     you meet the right person;
not when
     you grow into it;
not when
     you grow up;
not when
     you get there.
You are necessary now.
Hear it.
Believe it.
Live it.
