You Matter

I see you.
I want you to know, I understand.
You are not forgotten,
Displaced or even misplaced…
You matter in this universe.
You have value. You are beloved.

You are created exactly the way you are supposed to be.
This wasn’t a mistake, you are critical in the Grand Design.
I understand that you may feel lost.
I will try my very best to be your voice when words fail,

I will feed you when you are hungry,
With all of the resources I have been given;
Spiritually, emotionally, and in a tangible way.
You, Matter.

Even when you feel you have been left behind,
I hear you. I see you. I worry with you.
I know you exist. I know your struggle.
I struggle too. Your struggle is my struggle too.

I refuse to judge what you do or don’t do with what
I will, I can, and I am able to provide.
That, is not in my design.

If you have made mistakes, too few or too many, as I have,
Even when you are in a precarious, obsequious position…
I know you matter.
Together, we matter.
