Exchange Rate

Personal (Hope)

If life is a stock market,
my portfolio needs looking at.

My price has skyrocketed,
and my value has
diminished accordingly.

No one will take a risk on me
because I’ve revealed
my volatility.

I find myself plummeting,
falling of the scales
of their flowchart.

But I will not hit rock bottom;
I will exchange my life
for the one who never
paid the price for me.
