Worth It

Worth It
Form: Epistle Sonnet 14

Without love, we believe that we are lost
Empty and devoid of reasons to be
But should a lover be at any cost
Can we force love to be with stars uncrossed
When we don’t see self worthy of care
How then can we declare a love’s decree
When the heart is saying we’re not worth it
It is time reach out for the self-esteem
To believe in self and thus to redeem
The powers of love and all that they share
To believe the heart is able to dream
And that love is waiting out there somewhere
Rebuilding self is making us love fit
And putting the self down, that’s just bullshit
