"Good enough" - a phrase

Imposing a standard of our own creation

A dark, most sinister invitation for our minds

To spin endlessly,

Conceiving a million ways we fall short;

A million ways to fix it.

And when you're inevitably

Whittled to nothing,

The result of carving your soul

In a never-ending attempt to

Suddenly slip into that role,

I promise relief comes in letting go.

You are the product of

Oceans and galaxies

Of rocky cliffs and shooting stars

And the music that flows through you.

Your body is a vessel of

The vibrant sparks and smoldering embers

That burn in the force of your

Excruciatingly intricate character.

You are everything

You were intended to be

And the power you'll find

In "good enough"

Is only in its release.
