Do You Think You Need to Be…?

Do you think you need to be
the strongest and the wisest
the fastest and the funniest
the most talented or smartest
the most adulated artist
the bravest
or most famous?
Do you think you need to be
flawless, mistake-proof
over the roof
human perfection
to be loved and loveable?
You are right now and already
everything you need to be.
