I am enough, just as I am.

By William Sparks Smith


I am enough, just as I am.

Unfinished, Imperfect

Uncertain of the road I choose.

Yet, certain that I must continue.

I cannot go back


I am not enough for some

And too much for others.

I struggle with myself

I wrestle with fear

I avoid the parts of me that are dark and unavoidable


Yet I want to hide no more

I am alive.

I know because I feel

In my eyes

I am damaged, hurting, healing

And in need of improvement

But in the eyes of God

And in the place where grace abides

I know I am enough
