Acknowledge, accept, this is also you.

You hurt, you pain, you also fail.

You are a mess, like everybody else.

Not better, not worse, just the same.

Not kind always, no compassion.

Selfish sometimes, disappointing sometimes.

But learn, learn, learn from all of it.

Look deeper at your darkest secrets.

Sit with the parts of yourself that you regret, 

Feel the pain of your shortcomings

Embrace the inadequacies, let them heal

Into more grace, more honesty.

But keep on going, don’t stop.

Keep on doing, that’s your job.
