Value, Self worth
What does it come down to?
People’s praise, affirmation for the great things you do?
The problem is that when they stop praising
It’s not too long after you feel like you’re failing.
Then what do you do, keep doing stuff,
Filling all of your time till you’ve done enough?
But you will never be able to please
enough people, you’ll be down on your knees,
toiling away to get affirmation
never stopping or breathing, until you are leaving
yourself behind, to be someone you don’t recognise
You’re fiction, a fable, just someone’s label
Take a breath and breathe, take a moment and leave
the thoughts and worries that you had in your mind,
Take a step back from the fear that you’re always behind
It’s not them you need to please, but YOU, you need to find
And rest in the truth that you have value
Independent of likes, hits and shares through
social networks that make us feel less,
we’ve not go it together, our lives are a mess.
Please know you are loved by a higher power from above
He’s written in the bible that you are unique,
No need for popularity of special mystique
You have value because He made you
Regardless of the things you do
Stop building your worth on people’s praises
They come and go in various phases
Find value in the beauty that you create on this earth
And be sure to know
You truly have worth.
