You Know Better

And she heard his voice
whisper within:

Don’t be afraid to trust love
For love is the oxygen you breathe
It is always available for you
and that, you cannot lose

Even though they told you
as a child many, many times
that you were unworthy of love
unworthy of oxygen,
unworthy of life
and you had no right to exist

And even though you believed it
for many years
Even though they now repeat to you
those same ugly messages,

You know better

You are not their words
You are not their darkness
You are an earth angel

So breathe in, my darling
Breathe love in
Just receive it,
it is for free

Fill your heart, my darling
Breathe my love in
