Worth Less?

What is worth…The length and breadth of a woman or man?

What can we do to prove our worths within this flitting lifespan?

Worth is defined all around us…usually attached to retail.

But is worth money or something inside? I think buying your worth is a fail.

We’re all of us in some way addicted to Money…our current god of worth.

But more of us are seeing another validity…one from inside us brought forth.

It’s born of experience & has no connection to Money. It’s built through your life on a loom.

It’s how you reacted to illness & poverty & your fate. How far do you sink in the gloom?

Do you bob back up & ride life’s waves or sink into inky darkness?

Do you fill accounts with binary money, hiding it with finesse?

Are you poor & angry or poor and smiling… kind or spoiling for a fight?

When going through hell do you weep & wail or move onward though your soul’s night.

If you rise up from being knocked down & pennilessly reach the crest…

Does living a good life without skill or wealth make you worth less?

I see the world through a Painter’s eyes and process it with a Poet's Heart....it's quite a harsh place for the soul. It scratches and wears your true self down, at times, but the Beauty is Addictive. I feel for everyone I encounter. Everyone I encounter is a teacher if I'll let them be. I Empathize with everyone I talk to & I Think about Everything-LEVi
