This one is for those who don’t have emotional support.
This one is for those who feel completely alone. Who don’t have someone cheering you on, supporting every word, holding your hand, listening to your thoughts and dreams.
This is for the one who feels lost in a sea of everything. Whose sensitivity is unheard, unseen and not believed.
This is for the one who feels defeated because they’ve been ignored, blamed, and shamed.
This one is for those who watch and listen and give but are rarely received.
I believe, I believe, I believe --
You are worthy. You are loved. You are seen.
