Too Much Is (Never) Enough

 

You think you’re too much

or worse,

you think you’re not enough.

Implying there needs to be

just the right amount

of everything

inside you –

Implying there needs to be

balance

to make yourself seem

whole

complete –

A flawless human being.

 

But what is enough

and

what is too much?

Where do you draw the line?

Love,

hate,

compassion ,

kindness,

weakness,

heart,

soul.

 

Please tell me

how much

of each I need to find balance

to be whole

complete –

A flawless human being

or worse,

what must I remove?

 

Because

excuse me

if I may,

I am what you call

too much

and sometimes,

I feel like I am not enough.

But that’s okay

because I don’t need to be

whole

complete –

A flawless human being.

 

Because,

I am the tidal waves that crash against the shore too hard

and

the afternoon sun that shines too bright.

I am the time you spend with the ones you love,

(never enough)

I am the moment you have before saying goodbye at airport security,

(gone before you know it).

 

I am flawed

but I don’t need

to be anyone

other than

who I am.

 

I am never too much

I am enough.
