The Golden Crumbs

‘Fragments and crumbs of life, all the little pieces’ John Ruskin We often get waylaid with golden crumbs of two in love and have no clue of what we’re worth Too often than not, a few moments of someone’s time is all the sign of their devotion, labeling it emotion Always making excuses for the one who doles out the crumbs, we undervalue our worth and accept what’s tossed our way sad but it’s the golden truth the other not bothered or giving a damn about your worth. Feel worthy of your emotional culinary skills And take yourself elsewhere for nourishment For man cannot live on crumbs alone Even mounds of crumbs crumble and that’s not what your worth. 02.09.2020
