You are worthy

It is easy to say

that humans are

fractured, wounded

and even evil,

as if this is their

natural state of being

and the spiritual place

where they belong.


But I say, actually,

you are okay,

you are good,

and you can grow;

you just have to

believe that’s really so.


So, I reject the damaging

model of perfection

that we set up to

judge the human soul,

and I say instead that

you are worthy because

you are a human with

potential just like me.
