I Am learning to not fall in the water with you
when I perceive you struggling.
I Am learning to keep my feet planted firmly in the soil on the shore.
I Am learning to use my voice and my truth
to be as the outreached branch,
encouraging you to take hold
by your own volition.
I Am learning to not give in to
that you may drown and
that I did not do enough to save you.
I believe in you and
that God is always acting through you.
I am confident of your incredible
and all the growth opportunities before you
as I encourage you to
believe in yourself and show up for yourself.
I do not know what you may learn,
and where your path will take you,
but I love you so much that
I want you to find yourself
through and beyond your struggle
so you will believe in your greatness
as you become who you are destined to be.
And so may it be.
