Above All Else/Poem
No one should wake up and say to their self, “You are worthless”
Yet often times there is someone who feels helpless.
Something is broken, not right
Someone tossed and turned all night.
People are fragile when it comes to emotions
They have so much inside it can cause a commotion.
Desperate they search for the easiest way
To hide all their emotions and tuck them away.
Regardless of effort their effort is often not enough
This world can be domineering and rough.
People get beat down, often times their heart starts to bleed
They take scraps instead of what they need
Settle for something instead of what they deserve
Rejected and torn, they use up their reserve
Without much warning they dissolve away
The parts that were created to last and stay
The heart is usually the first
They can’t replace what makes their soul thirst.
This vicious cycle repeats and depletes
One’s basic worth and self needs
Over time we grow accustom to being nothing
Having no heart left for something
It all starts with feeling worthless
Regardless of ones conscious
In spite of all effort given
Don’t stop believing
Above all else.
