I am Enough

I am Enough

A Poem by Beautiful Intentions

Have you so easily forgotten
Of all the terrible things you've done
And yet, you still make such demands
As if all that I have given, all that I am
Has never once been enough

Where have you been when it is me in need?
Ask yourself what you've done for us
Where were you when the tears began to fall?
Held in yet another's arms
So don't scream at me of what it takes
How you so dare, dare to speak of love

I am above all this
This anger... This pain...
As all I have ever asked for are wings
If only to be permitted to fly
Fly on high

How many times do I have to say it?
Until I have choked, drowned on the repeating plea
How loudly do I have to yell before you'll hear me?
No voice left, until I've had no voice left
So don't scream to me of what it takes
How you so dare, dare to speak of love

I am beyond all this
These scars... These questions...
As all I have ever asked for are wings
If only to be permitted to fly
Fly on high

Did you think that I would just lie down?
Just let you continue to kick me around
Did you believe that I could overlook the truth?
As the only romance in my life, is the romance I create
So don't scream at me of what it takes
How you so dare, dare to speak of love

I am above all this
This loss... This weakness...
As all I have ever asked for are wings
If only to be permitted to fly
Fly on high

Are you finally ready to hear what should be said?
This time is for me, it's my turn to recieve
Are you a woman of nightmares or a woman of dreams?
Just watch closely, so closely as to what I do next
So don't scream at me of what it takes
How you so dare, dare to speak of love

Have you so easily forgotten
Of all the terrible things you've done
And yet, you still make such commands
As if all that I have given, all that I am
Has never once been enough

Author's Note

Beautiful Intentions
I struggled with the decision to post this piece... As sometimes we write things that we are not proud of, feel a certain way that we wish we didn't feel, and become something we don't want to become when it hurts. But sometimes one needs to remember...

While reading, I could feel anger, pain, hurt yet I sense pride or self worth. Writing I think is a good way to pour it all out. And after awhile one should be able to look Back at the work without feeling the pain but the beautiful art of writing poetry. Thank you for this lovely piece .

a very strong, honest write. a cathartic cleansing of the soul. must always love ourselves first then it can spill over to others. forgiveness is the key that unlocks doors. great job.

These feelings are never to be ashamed of. As these are the emotions, we do at one time of life, experience. I can totally relate to this. Nice reading it

you are welcome
a woman writing confessional poetry...rebuking herself in the lines....this is powerful...and is a way of purging what is hurting inside of us.

we have to let it go and forgive ourselves....and we definitely need to be able to forgive and move on.
