Poetry:..100 percent..

By Monica C. Voskamp

 

I believe in you.

I believe in you

Though not 100 percent

—yet.

 

I believe in you

For what you can do

Right now.

 

I believe in you

You will find your joy

You will.

 

I believe in you

Even though this power,

Was not instilled in you.

 

It does not matter so much

The voices of the past.

They don’t stand a chance

Because your trumph card is this:

I’m finally starting to believe

In you.

 

That I finally can look at you

And smile when I do,

This gives me hope,

Hope I’m starting to believe.

 

Hope that I will do more

than just dream today.

Hope that one day I will

Believe the full 100 percent.

 

Today the door cracked opened.

I took the first step and decided:

I actually do believe.

I believe the most important part,

The very first 10 percent.

 

No matter it’s a little bit,

It is still belief.

I believe in beautiful humanity,

I believe in *you*.

 

Don’t lose heart at all.

Because as much as I believe

You can smile so beautiful,

(And I know you do this well)

Know you can also climb the charts to

100 percent.

 

Always believe. Always hope. Always love.  💕

Poetry: ..Worthy..

By Monica C. Voskamp

 

No one.

No one determines your worth

but you.

You.

You determine your worth

You discover your worth

You believe the truth

too long untold:

You are worthy.

 

You are worthy,

not a pitiful worm

not a sour taste

not a mistake.

You are worthy,

Worthy of good.

 

Believe, receive, accept

this truth finally told,

You. Are. Worthy.

Now live loud,

Look up and wear

your  rightful crown,

Worthy.

 

Always believe. Always hope. Always love.  💕
