Enough

It is a movie with Jennifer Lopez.
It is the amount of money you need.
It is the number of chords you know.
It is a hand over your coffee cup, a sign to the waitress.
It is what you tell your child when he just won’t stop.
It is the amount of food you never think you can eat.
It is what you tell yourself
about your parents, your spouse, your friends, your love,
so you can stop looking elsewhere.
It is what you fear you will never be: enough.
