I am Not Broken

I am not having a hard time.

I am not hurt. I am not broken.

I am pure love, nothing more, nothing less. I am stardust. I am light.

I have parts of me that you might see as broken.

Those feelings that I do not want to feel.

That pain that overwhelms me.

Those hurts that I do not want to face.

But I am not those feelings, I am not that pain, I am not that hurt.

Life has its ups and downs. Life has hard times and easy times. Times when I am happy and times when I am sad.

Those black holes in my universe.

These are the disassociated parts of myself that I open to you.

The parts that I don’t want to acknowledge but that keep reminding me that they are there.

You hold me and I am able to hold those parts.

To comfort them, to hear them, to feel them, to embrace them, to let them rest.

They are a part of me but they are not me. They are scattered dark stars in my universe that just need love to shine on them.

I am not having a hard time.

I am not hurt. I am not broken.

I am whole and complete and beautiful.

I am a shining star.

I am me.
