Worth a sonnet


How do we measure a person’s value?
Is it with abstract or concrete tools?
What speaks of our grandeur and unique qualities
Are the rules established by our community
What makes us want to spend time with persons
As relative, friend, colleague, or acquaintance
Is based on how we can be of assistance
How we can benefit them as a consequence
In other words, we have to prove our WORTH
From the very first moments of our birth
If we are good enough, then we are worth the while
If we’re not, we’re just a worthless ride
Let’s face it: we receive the time and attention
Of those who have their own intentions
