Love Poem: Measuring Worth

Measuring Worth

Though countless hours slip away
With memories unregistered
There are moments that define us
By the love and comfort offered

Portfolios filled with kindness
Will take us to a higher plane
Than resumes of apathy
Or PhDs of the inhumane

Some brains are blessed with intellect
To achieve academic height
But spiritual souls rise higher
As we enter the final light

It’s not the gifts we have at birth
But the ones we nourish and grow
By which our value will be judged
And passage to heaven bestowed
