Worthless Worth

This world wants us
To think we need enough
Stuff and then we’ll be happy

This world wants us
To think we need success
And then we’ll be happy

This world wants us
To accumulate and build net worth
And that will make us worthy

But all that stuff
Just causes more stress
As does chasing
The ever rising bar of success

Things and praise are temporary
They fade and are gone
In a breath this is
All worthless worth

There is another kind of worth
The kind that tells us we were born
With inherent value
That worth comes from God

We were made in His image
He doesn’t need us
He wants us
And that is a worthy worth
