Do you not understand,
Your value is inherent;
There is nothing can define your worth,
In your heart it is apparent.
The way you smile,
The way you laugh,
The way you view the world around you
Each little thing that makes you “you”
Makes me so glad I’ve found you.
I care for you,
Just as you are,
And I will always stand beside you.
You must learn to love yourself
And know your value is inside you.
For the fuel burns and the world turns
Whether it does so with or without you,
And yes, there are people and things
That do not care about you.
What matters most
Is that you know
You matter and you are worth knowing.
Not for the work you do,
But because you’re you,
Still learning and still growing.
