Here are some of the most relatable poems by Rupi Kaur that teaches you your worth and helps you aiding your hard times;

(2) Rise
said the moon
and the new day came
the show must go on said the sun
life does not stop for anybody
it drags you by the legs
whether you want to move forward or not
that is the gift
life will force you to forget how you long for them
your skin will shed till there is not
a single part of you left they’ve touched
your eyes finally just your eyes
not the eyes which held them
you will make it to the end
of what is only the beginning
go on open the door to the rest of it

time – Rupi Kaur

(6) If you are not enough for yourself
you will never be enough
for someone else

-Rupi Kaur

(7) Somewhere along the way
i lost the self-love
and became my greatest enemy
i thought i’d seen the devil before
in the uncles who touched us as children
the mobs that burned our city to the ground
but i’d never seen someone as hungry
for my flesh as i was
i peeled my skin off just to feel awake
wore it inside out
sprinkled it with salt to punish myself
turmoil clotted my nerves
my blood curdled
i even tried to bury myself alive
but the dirt recoiled
you have already rotted it said
there is nothing left for me to do

self hate – Rupi Kaur 

(8) accept that you deserve more
than painful love
life is moving
the healthiest thing
for your heart is
to move with it

– Rupi Kaur

(9) The world
gives you
so much pain
and here you are
making gold out of it

there is nothing purer than that – Rupi Kaur 

(10) There are far too many mouths
but not enough worth
what you’re offering
give yourself to few
and to those few
give heavily

– Rupi Kaur

meant to rip you in half
but you hold the power to not
turn their words into a knife
and cut yourself

(12) If you are broken
and they have left you
do not question
whether you were
the problem was
you were so enough
they were not able to carry it

in half

will not
end you
