She Questions Her Worth


Her friends tell her she’s worth more than she will ever know.

Her man doesn’t even know what worth is.


Her friends tell her to leave him.

Her man tells her to leave them.


She listens to him.

Now she feels alone.


It seems like the longer she stays

the more she’s hurts.

Now she thinks it’s all my fault

because I never tried to learn on my own.
