There was a time when I was…

Worthy of more than just your scorn.

Valued more than your grandmother’s faded linens.

Someone who had something to say.


Now I sit and wonder what it all means.

Why the earth seems to revolve without care for me?

What does a man measure his worth by?

A faded photograph of you, collecting dust, shoved in a drawer

Under a silk bandana.

Yours, I think.

I mattered to you, didn’t I?


I was, once.
