They didn't see your worth (Pressure makes diamonds!)

Updated: Aug 23, 2023

Let's turn our pain into power... I hope this poem reminds you to see your worth despite it all.

crown of diamond

Thank you for the hurt

for controlling me

looking like philanthropy

thank you for not loving me

I learned to love myself

and found my holiness abound

thank you for rejecting me

the fear in your eyes

only showed me my greatness

thank you for disrespecting me

I learned to shout and scream

until I am heard and I'm seen

thank you for the abuse, the lies, the manipulation

the fire of my heart did not die

my power is my love and my crown

I am royalty

I am the divine

I am I am I am

miraculously, expansively, unapologetically

all I've ever wanted to be.
