How to Measure Worth

By Sara Rodgers

Why must we measure worth
By how high my GPA is
Or how nice my hair looks today.

By how many friends I have
How many likes I get
How many messages on my phone.

By the proportions of my cheekbones
The type of fabric on my back
Resting rejection on my shoulders.

Like an equation without a solution
Why is worth attributed to me?
Price, cost, valuation, quotation, estimate.

Worth is weightless
Once we stop trying to measure it
We will all feel it
