You have been granted a wealth that cannot be bought. You have been given suffering. You have received trial, hardship, grief. You have been unseen. You have more value because you know what it is to be alone. You see and feel and no one knows. You perceive in spite of not being understood. They can’t see because they’re distracted. You are a shrouded treasure that is tired with the weight of responsibility. You are a hidden voice.

Stay awake just a little longer. You want to run but it’s an illusion. You don’t need to fear yourself. Afraid because of the silence. It’s ok to not be able to figure it all out. Unknown is restful certainty.

You have more. You have worth.
