To the people who feel like they’ve lost their value,
Do believe what you’re feeling but not that you are
Made less worthy because of your circumstances.
It may be that you’ve screwed up in your finances.
How you’re treated due to it leaves a psychic scar
On the consciousness present. What is there to do?
If I went to the store with a one dollar bill,
And I saw something that costs a dollar with tax,
What would be the bill’s value? It would be the same
As the item referred to. With it I would claim
The thing without performing unnatural acts
With the sales staff. Nothing more I’d need to fulfill.
What if I balled the dollar bill up? Would it be
Still worth one dollar? Would it be eighty five cents
Due to its being crumpled? That would not be true.
If I stomped on the dollar and tore it, would you
Still accept it without any hint of offense?
The answer is you would take it most probably.
Life presents us with issues that we must get through.
In the process we may feel severely beaten,
Stomped upon, crumpled up, and then cast to the curb.
Your value is unchanged. Know that you are superb
No matter your condition. Your life will sweeten
In the recognition of the value of you.
