Being

“Being”

I’m here
I won’t be destroyed
I’m here
I won’t be moved
I’m here
Don’t take me for granted
I’m here
I have nothing to prove
I’m here
I deserve to be heard
I’m here
I deserve to be seen
I’m here
I deserve to be touched
I’m here
I will not be demeaned
I’m here
I’m claiming my life
I’m here
I’m taking up space
I’m here
I am not afraid
I’m here
I’m showing my face
I’m here
I live in my body
I’m here
I trust in my heart
I’m here
Connected to Spirit
I’m here
You can’t take me apart
I’m here
Get used to the thought
I’m here
I’m worthy to be
I’m here
I’m loving and loved
I’m here
And I’ve set myself free
