I Could Be So Much More

You say I am

Of no use

You say I am 

Abortive, bootless and counterproductive

You say I am

Disadvantageous, dysfunctional and expendable

You say I am

Feckless, fruitless and futile


You keep on saying

You can't find

The diamond inside me

All I am

Is just the

Dust and the rough


You say I am

Good-for-nothing, hopeless and idle

You say I am

Impracticable, impractical and incompetent

You say I am

Ineffective, ineffectual and inept

You say I am

Inoperative, inutile and meaningless


Yet, I could be

So much more

Something you say

Isn't part of this world

Isn't meant to be me

Shouldn't I stand

By your side

All I know

Is to be on my knees

And in free-falling tears


You say I am

No good, nonfunctional and pointless

You say I am

Profitless, purposeless and scrap

You say I am

Stupid, unfunctional and unproductive

You say I am

Unpurposed, unusuable and valueless


You keep saying

I am a waste

Weak and worthless

You keep saying

No you've left

A voice inside me head

Saying the same

Every passing day

Morningglory's picture

Oh how we can use other peoples words to beat ourselves down.

We should start telling ourselves the opposite of what that one said. We are worthy!
