One grain of sand.

I am one

A grain of
Sand
Broken off
Some larger
Rock

I have been
Eroded
Drowned
Chipped
Ground down

I have
Floated
Floundered
Sunk
And eventually
Washed up

One in
A zillion
Nothing
To anyone

But if anyone
Took a much
Closer look
They'd see
Me

Beautiful
Colorful
Imperfect
Perfection

A shine
A gleam
That nature's
Fury
Excelled at
Breaking
And making
Me
Seem
Insignificant

I always
Deserved
To be
Part of that
Bigger
Whole

I always
Deserved
Better

I deserved
To be cherished
As my original
Wholeness

I still
Deserve
To be cherished
Because
I'm still
Here

After everything
And everyone
Did their best
To break me

Even if
I'm
One in a
Trillion
Insignificant
Morsels

I'm
Me
And
None other
Is
Exactly
Like
Me

My beauty
Lies in
My journey
And what
Could be
If someone
Noticed
And took
Inspired
Action

Otherwise
I'll eternally
Just be
Me
Let nature
And time
Continue
To have their way
Until there
Eventually will be
Nothing
Left of
Me

May you see your beauty and value even when no one else does. May you be fully supported and still function as your own self. May you know you’re unique and needed in this world. May you have everything you need to blossom into something greater. May you know your life has purpose and that everything you went through is of value. May you have big dreams of better and brighter futures and see them begin to take shape. May you know you are valued and cared for. May you know where you belong. May you understand how you fit and why life seems pointless sometimes. May you know that if nothing else, the divine is still in you, and cares about every grain of sand. May you know that the divine loves and supports you in all that you do, no matter how big or small, how rough or polished, how battered or beaten, our lives do matter somehow.

Om Shanti
