Self-Worth Less Than Love

Shattered stone and broken glass.
Red dust stains this precious mass.
Worthless rocks
The shape of love.
Life worth less than priced possesion.
We give weight a bad name
Gravity doesn't apply here

Beauty needs no explanation.
The wonders of wonders.
Typical gifts; the thoughts that count.
Who's counting cards.
Thank you cards.

Losing all sense of what we cannot see.
A lack of mystery
All grace from history
Everything we see is not a materialistic irony

Laugh out loud to confuse the world.
Optimism is only imaginary
Realism is only the darkness
No stars to see.
