How is it that we are conditioned to believe

That our worth lies in what we achieve

To specific goals we attach our self-esteem

If the goal is not reached, to us it seems

That we are not worthy of love or respect

If the goal is reached, we come to expect

Something better, the goal post keeps moving forward

And we never reach the point of adequate self-worth…


We are not what we accomplish, nor what we do

Our worth lies in our existence as human beings, it is true

Our worth is unwavering, immutable, unattached

From other people and things, when ourselves we detach

And accept ourselves as we are, we find

Our self-worth which has been within us confined
