“as you are,” says the universe

“after…” you answer

“as you are,” says the universe

“before…” you answer

“as you are,” says the universe

“when…” you answer

“as you are,” says the universe

“why…” you answer

“because you are happening now. And your happening is beautiful. The thing that both keeps me alive and brings me to my knees. You don’t even know how exquisite you are. As you are,” says the universe through tears.

— Nayyirah Waheed
