Rebirth of Worth

REBIRTH OF WORTH Self conceit is thought a trait to be deplored Despised when recognised in self or others And modesty is praised with full accord Instilled in us by Dutch uncles and mothers Yet if you choose to go with the inverse Self hating makes the pairing - a dichotomy And could in truth prove as a greater curse Executing an elan ‘vitalotomy’ When I in life myself to another endow What would the value be of that donation If I esteem it little as gift; I disavow Responsibility; I make an abdication So let us renew acceptance of our worth Grant life to self, thence all by this rebirth p.s. Whether our value is given by God or is innate It may be enhanced or destroyed by our own dictate
