Worth

How do you quantify?
Your own worth
How do you justify?
Your existence from birth

How do others treat you?
What is fair game?
When you’re hurt by one
Do you treat another with disdain?

Do you feel vulnerable?
Or protected like a rock
Is life planned or a tumble?
Are you easy to unlock?

Do you pursue the lost soul?
Or settle for who cares?
Are you swimming in a shoal?
Or one who never shares?

Do you forget the people?
Who never knew your worth?
May they reveal their regret?
Where once we were their mirth

About markious72

Here I wish to let my strange and vivid imagination and opinions run wild. I do hope you like what you read. I would love to be a writer, I won't pretend otherwise. Although it is only in the last couple of years that I have realised it. I guess if it meant to happen it will. Happy reading, happier writing. :-)
