Messages You Should Have Received #Poetry #Past

You are enough
You are lovable
Your feelings matter

This is a poem I wrote to my childhood self, who I will be referring to affectionately as “Little Jay.”



  1. I really love this! Younger me could have really used this mantra. It reminds me of the one Viola Davis’ character used in The Help: “You is smart. You is kind. You is important.” Thanks for sharing. I think I might share this with my kids. I put a daily quote in their mirror every morning. This would be something good for them to remember.

  2. I sooo needed to see and read this! It’s so beautiful here in NC today. The sounds of birds singing mixed in with a little chainsaw to enhance the mood…lol.

    Seriously, think I’ll write this on my mirror!
