We are always told
We are worth our
Weight in gold. And
That's a sweet sentiment
But I don't think it's
Genuine, and it implies
That someone's worth is
Definable by societal objects.
You are worth every weird thing
You've woken your parents,
Your partner for, every open
Door, every closed door.
Every movie, every book you've
Loved, the thoughts you've had about
Every word, some quotes stick in your
Mind, the ones that apply to your life.
Most of all, you are worth your thoughts.
The bad ones, the good ones, they all combine
To make a person, and thoughts are worth
Everything, the fabric of a mind.
You are not defined by
Societal objects. You are
Worth more than something
Hollow like that.
