i have been told my entire life 
that i need to be more 
assertive 
i have despised my soft heart 
how easily i hurt 
until i met you 


you make softness seem 
so pure, yet 
so powerful 
you remind me of the strength 
in being gentle 

i have been told my entire life 
that i need to be more 
assertive 
and it has scared me 

into believing

that i am weak


i realize

it is far scarier for most
to be soft 

so maybe we are the courageous ones


and when i speak with you 
i am reminded of just how beautiful you are authentically 

 it was then i decided to discover my own beauty in being authentically me
