I thought I did not have rights
Rights to happiness
Rights to love and be loved
Rights to be successful
And leave a dent on the earth
Rights to plan a trip to the Maldives
And see it come to life
Rights to want good things for me.
I thought I needed permission,
Just didn’t know from whom,
So I continued lurking in the shadows,
Denying myself life-changing opportunities,
Because how dare I?
Because who am I to even dream?
Well, the wheels are changing,
And I have awaken to the realization that has always stared me in the face only I didn’t recognize it,
I have the rights to live my best life now, tomorrow and every other day,
Jesus died for those rights.
And made me worthy of them.
P/s: I don’t what you have been dying yourself because you thought you didn’t deserve it. This J just a reminder that you do have the rights.
