Dear 3am children,

You are not enough is what they say but you should remember that your mother has drained what filled her chest just for you. At some point in your lives someone has loved you more than you loved yourself.

Your wrists are beautiful they let you hold hands and hold people in place even if their mouths are ahead of their heads or that the sound of their legs running are heavier than words but people will stay – two or three or one just remember that someone will stay because they love you and so, you should preserve your beautiful wrists for them so that you could hold them one day.

You are not your sins, child they will haunt you, your mistakes your past shall keep you awake- that is okay, that is life. You will make mistakes, don’t let them drag you down instead build castles out of them use them to reach the sky. Use them to reach greatness. Your sins will be forgiven, they will be don’t drown, come here, sleep. Don’t let your tears suffocate you. Your bed is not a boat towards greatness, towards love, or towards forgiveness but it is you so live.
