You SO are

Hardwired Sunset Heart


I will not have it.

I’ll brook no argument.

I’ll tackle all those demons

With their malicious, hate intent

Those ones who whisper in your ear

Who play upon your every fear

Who stalk your shadows and stick too near

I’ll batter them.


I’ll stand firm

I’ll stare down those who criticise

I’ll drown out all their voices

Their slander and their lies

The ones who say you’re not good enough

Who say you’re made of stupid stuff

Who treat your heart a bit too rough

I’ll clobber them.


I’ll be here

I’ll lend my strength to win the fight

I’ll gladly be your tag-team-mate

You brought the love, I’ll bring the light

Let me help – I’ve got your back

I’m ready to withstand attack

They’ve no idea the punch I pack

We’ll conquer them.


And later when the fights are done

Battles over, wars then won

Bedecked in glorious victory

You’ll know your worth intrinsically

For underneath those Sunset skies

The scales will drop – you’ll recognise

The truth I won’t let be defiled:

You’re so, so, SO, SO, SO, SO worthwhile.

    Hopefully no one heard about how you ko’d yourself that time….although I heard it was a helluva punch!

    Love it. Thanks. Really struggling here. So many changes going on. Digging through old wounds to figure out a new way. It’s right now that I wish my imaginary interweb friends were in the real world for a cuppa.

    really uplifting, you have met them head on, and punched hard, how easy it is to create fear, when we are all born to love, blessings

    I hope you recite this to yourself whilst looking yourself in the eye via mirror, because, “You’re so, so, SO, SO, SO, SO worthwhile.”

    What a great poem of support. Reminds me of the current Beth Moore study.
