Worth – Author Riley James Neault

Divided Lines

Currency in the current scene
A tracking of worth
Occupied by envy and greed
The fracking of earth
Preaching equality
Teaching economy
Poverty’s proving
To say that we’re equal is absurd
Approaching the hottest of heat
Watching the planet just burn
Changing migration
The patterns of birds
No fixed destination
Go travel the world
Unravel, observe
Find your space
In this place
Don’t be swayed by the herd
This comfort’s deserved
It’s not black
It’s not white
Everything’s blurred
Or buried or burned
Or covered in dirt
Now is the time
Like a plant from a seed
Come unearthed
Arise from the depths of the dark
Back to life and unnerved
That’s the meaning of worth
Simply being yourself
And that feeling
Should never be work
Unafraid of the hurt
On display, on your shirt
Wear your heart on your sleeve
You’ve been meant to since birth
