You Are Not What’s Broken


by Muneera Pilgrim


Dear those who don’t want to be here, you are not what’s broken.
You are the recipient and the creation of love, and people pray for you, even when you don’t know it.
Someone, somewhere looks at you, or hears your name and smiles because you warm their heart, and only you can do it.
Know the sun was made to kiss you,
the rain was made to cool you,
the birds were made to serenade you.
You are not what’s broken.
There are a fleet of angels guiding your steps.
Know that you are more than existing, you are living, breathing and loved.
You are intentional,
You are not accidental
You are not coincidentally
You were made from purpose and intent.
Though you don’t see it, to others it is clear,
You are the world and we need you here.
Know that you are super fly by design and even if you don’t know it, I will know it for you.
But more than that, you are not what’s broken, you are what keeps us from breaking, you are sheer beauty, and you are loved.
