Your present worth (part 2)

Your worth is not determined by the person across from you.

it is not determined by the cashier who saw the pigments of your skin and casted you on the watch list.

It is not determined by the church who heard the sins you confessed and judged you imperfect to call you their brother.

it is not determined by the remarks from your peers.

nor is it determined by the upbringing of your childhood.

Your present worth goes deeper than your net worth.

your present worth addresses whether you have been in touch with your soul.

have you been the fragmentations of everyone’s opinions or have you formed your own without dependence?

Your present worth is not determined by the letters on the registration form.

neither is the faith you hold so true.

Your present worth is your inner core. The mind that you put over matter. The voices you blocked out that tells you a different story. The expectations of nobody but your own.

Keep the fire burning, but let it burn steady.

For there is no rush going fast, or you will miss the signs guiding your path.
