Two tiny words

I complicated everything
I magnified my pain
I clung to insecurities
I worried all in vain

Fear became a way of life
A habit I had acquired
Exhausting to maintain because
my mind was always tired

Others said “don’t worry”,
“calm down” or “let it go”
It really was that simple
yet then, I did not know

Then two tiny words appeared
these words my soul did save
I am happy, I am healthy
I am strong and I am brave
