Know That You Are Worth More

Know that you are worth more
when the hands that reach out to you
take away more than they give.

Know that you are worth more
when the home that you come home to
is more painful than the world outside.

Know that you are worth more
when the body that you drag through life
is less than what meets the demands of life.

Know that you are worth more
when your pockets and cupboards are empty
and your obligations and your hunger are in abundance.

Know that you are worth more
than the one that you are responsible for
is not able to respond or love in return.

Know that you are worth more
when your heart goes unnoticed
unless you come up lacking for not having met their needs.

Know that you are worth more
in spite of the mistakes and fears and
in despite of the accusations and proclamations.

Know that you are worth more
when the gates of hell rattle
a message of condemnation and fury.
