I Am Enough — A Poem about Worthiness

Your worth goes to your core. This is the truth: You’re worthy now. You are enough, and I am enough, and this poem is dedicated to that Truth.

Don’t think you’re enough, whole, loving, essential? Read this poem. It’s a prayer, an affirmation, wisdom that goes deeper than what you think about yourself.

The real truth is you’ve been worthy all along. Enough. Whole in your essence. Here for a reason.

The teaching embedded in this poem is one of remembrance through presence. It’s an exploration of your innate self-worth by way of inhabiting the fullness of this moment. It’s a declaration of truth, a prayer for healing.

You’re connected to everything. You’re the earth and its flowers. You’re the stars in the sky. Everything is here with you. And you belong to everything, including yourself. Because: you are everything.

Read this poem like it’s yours. It is.

And if you really love it, get the poetry print version of it here! It'll remind you every day that you're here for a reason.

Your worth goes to your core. This is the truth: You’re worthy now. You are enough, and I am enough, and this poem is dedicated to that Truth. Don’t remember that you’ve always been enough, whole, loving, essential? Read this poem. It’s a prayer, an affirmation, wisdom that goes deeper than what you think about yourself.

I Am Enough — A Poem about Worthiness

There is a wholeness that’s already mine.

It’s already ours.

I am not just the seed,

I am the rain that waters the flower.

It’s a reality that’s already there,

That I am enough.

I take on faith

That wholeness is already mine,

That I need do nothing to deserve,

That my worthiness is based only on my being.

 

I am wise enough to let go,

And I am strong enough to remember the truth

Of who I really am.

I can encounter the world

In such a way

That I remember who I am.

 

I am the rest inside the unrest.

I am the depth of the sky,

And the light piercing the sea.

I am the crest of a wave.

All that I need to be,

I am.

 

There is no problem to solve in this moment.

There is no plan to make,

No failure to be feared,

No other place to be.

This moment is enough.

This place is enough.

This imperfection is enough.

I am patient enough for my life to unfold in divine timing.

 

I feel the fullness of my life in this moment.

I feel the richness of my life in this space.

I am loved beyond thought,

And I have nothing to prove.

There is no one to impress.

I receive the message

That being is enough.

 

I am wise enough to see magic through a child’s eyes.

I am resilient enough to see past the pain.

I am kind enough to realize

That my worth has been with me

This whole time.

 

Beyond the shadows

That I have created,

The message remains:

I am the same.

I have always been enough,

Simply by being here.

Simply by being.

 

It only takes a moment,

And I remember this again.

    Hi Jennifer,
    I wanted to let you know how much I love your poem. I used it as part of my Oral Interpretation for my speech class. Your poem was given to me a while back to help me realize how important I am, and to remind that I am enough. The words are beautiful and thy mean so much. If you are ever interested in listening to my speech, I would love to share it with you!
    Sincerely,
    Jamie

    This is exactly what I needed to hear right now. I have been struggling so much with negative self talk and measuring myself in relation to others. I am teaching a live yoga class tomorrow, and was wondering if I could share this- with credit to you of course :)

    Hi Jennifer-

    Your poem is so beautiful and I was wondering if it would be ok with you if I shared it with inmates at our local jail? Your words are so necessary for them at this moment (and all moments). I would be sure to give you credit.

    Thank you,

    Sharon

    Steve, thank you from the bottom of my heart, truly. I feel blessed that this poem found you, and spoke to you when you were open to the message. It makes my day and touches my heart that these words can be part of your healing and life right now. Wishing you a year full of strength, light and meaningful connection <3

    Dear Jen, I feel so blessed to have come across your poem; its power is unfathomable. I have taken to reading it aloud several times a day and find myself sobbing repeatedly through the deep connection I have to each and every word. As with all good writing, yours is so lean and beautifully crafted; you take me on an extraordinary journey, visiting all areas of simple truth and self-belief. I have been dogged by low self-esteem throughout my life and am only now discovering the pain and the fear behind the ‘shadows that I have created’; I am blissfully thankful that much healing is now underway and am so proud to tell you that your sublime creation is at the heart of this personal work.
    With love and unending gratitude, Steve

    Than you for this beautiful poem. When I have to be near my family I struggle and this poem supported me when I didn’t have someone to turn to.
