I spent myself most lavishly

I used to worry about my sanity

Before I finally understood myself

Before my perceived definition

Was believed to be of any value

My true worth is unmeasurable

To those who connect and love- me

For all others, I’ll never measure up

Nor ever achieve their desires for me

It’s simply not my responsibility to

I wasn’t created for their purpose

I’m worthy of much more than that  

I still care what the world thinks

But I stop carrying any… critiques
