There Is So Much More To You

Do not let the world tell you that you are only one thing. You are not able to be fit into a mold or a box. There is no checklist to encapsulate all that is you. You are not the sins of your mother, your father, your brother, your sister or the ones you hold dear. You are not the numbers on your paycheck, your social media streams, the figures on a scale. You cannot be packaged pretty in a single word, verb, or adjective.

There is so much more to you.

You are dark, you are light. You are a million tiny stars and scars, and bits of bone and blood wrapped up into a living, breathing, and beautiful human.

You are human.

There are flaws within you, there is perfection within you. There is strength and there is weakness. There is good, and there is and bad. There is sweet and salty, kindness and crass. There is love, and yes, there is hate.

There is ambition that beats in your chest, love that pulses in your heart, dreams that spark within your head.

Thousands of dreams of your ancestors rest within your bones.

You are a warrior, a fighter, a prayer, a mother, a father, a daughter, a brother, a hoper, a prayer, a dreamer, a wisher, a lover, a hater, a doer, a mover and shaker.

You are capable of more than the lines on your hand tell you, more than the voices around you speak, more than what you see staring back at you.

There is so much more to you.

Do not attempt to contain your love, your passion, your creativity, you vision. Do not let the world force you into a singular word or a tiny box.

You were built to make your mark.

You get to decide what that mark will be.

Now go, let it out. TC mark
