This poem came through today for a new friend of mine, but it holds great wisdom for all of us.
Sickness of the mind oft comes
From false beliefs about one’s worth.
You walk around believing
You’ve been unwanted from your birth.
All your life you felt the shame
The painful scars you bore.
Your pain you carried ‘round with you
And like a flag it wore.
But don’t you know that every soul who walks this earth
Did come here for a reason?
Like winter, summer, spring, and fall,
There’s purpose in every season.
No child is born who’s not desired
No soul comes without love.
For with or without parents
You were conceived in love.
You come here to learn lessons
Your walk through life you choose.
And not another soul on earth
Is meant to wear your shoes.
Through each hardship you do bear
You stretch and bend and grow.
Even if the many scars
Upon your face do show.
You have suffered all your life
And thus you did so learn.
But there is hope for happiness
At every little turn.
If your life has been so hard
That you can hardly bear it.
Don’t be afraid to raise your eyes
And with your helpers share it.
For always have we walked with you.
Your every tear we’ve seen.
The heartaches and the agony
And every step between.
Yet always is there hope for you
A chance for things to change
With all new thoughts we promise you
Your life you’ll rearrange.
See the way your life you’ve shaped
With thoughts you did believe.
Change these thoughts to good ones
And your pain they will relieve.
It takes hard work to turn around
Beliefs you’ve thought were true.
But when you see they held no truth
You’ll see a whole new you.
Practice every moment.
From this day make a fresh start.
To speak to yourself lovingly.
Find the love within your heart.
And send that love throughout your soul.
Its warmth you need to feel
For only when you love yourself
Will you begin to heal.
Know that you don’t walk alone
As this new life you tread.
We walk beside you, hold your hand
We stroke your face and head.
So start this day to love yourself
As we have always done.
Your life it has great meaning
Our precious little one.
Feel your worth. Know that you’re loved.
Believe it in your heart.
And on this day a whole new life
We’re helping you to start.
