worthy of myself

You valued me

At much less

Than I am worth

And I myself

Believed you

As if you are the one

Who gets to determine

My essence

I treated myself

As if I was

Less than worthy

But I now realize

You are not the appraiser

Of my value

I am no relic

That can be priced

For I am priceless

I am a treasure

But not of a rare gemstone

But of a force of nature

A monument, a world wonder

The people around me

May marvel at my beauty

My grace, my majesty

But you cannot stick

A price tag on me

I am not to be sold

To any one man
