Who am I?
What gives me worth?
What is my value?
I continue my search

Do clothes give me status?
Does jewelry increase my worth?
Is value tied to my bank account?
Do I need to weigh less to be more?

Can I possibly keep up
With the latest styles and trends?
Is my hair okay?
Are my shoulders broad enough?
Do I need more money to buy more stuff?

I feel exhausted
I’m almost broke
Inside and out
Do I have to keep up?
Please, tell me this is a joke

I give up
I give in
Time for me to begin again
Realizing my worth is not
My weight in gold
My heart holds the enormous wealth
