10 packets of seeds

I wish I could buy a packet of seeds labelled

believe

self love

and go away fear

I would buy ten packets of each

and plant them gently in the flesh of my skin

my tears would water them daily

and while the seeds grew

the sun would grow too

until my heart beats with confidence

and my eyes smile at my reflection in the moon

my hands would no longer hold an earthquake

and my voice could travel

and become something people would listen to

If I could buy a packet of seeds labelled 

believe

self love

and go away fear

I would buy ten packets of each

and then 

I would give them to you
