I Am Not Worthless

I doubt my self-worth But I am not worthless I’ve touched so many hearts This is not where my life ends, it’s where it starts My time is not done on this earth I am not worthless Without me, this world would be a little more gloomy My existence is and will always be important to those who know me I love myself enough to know that I am talented Maybe I can’t draw or sing or even play an instrument But I am not worthless Yes, sometimes I feel trapped and alone But sometimes I feel as though I am sitting on a throne There are still so many things I need to see and do Through the pain and loathing, I have grown I have too many friends to ever feel alone The unhappiness that ruled me has been overthrown I will not let depression reign again I am my own ruler I am the queen of my own life
