    Who Knows?

    Since I am usually depressed, I often feel worthless but for a certain someone, I am his everything. I mean the world to him. Certainly, I am priceless.

    I Don't Know What I'm Worth

    I don't know what I'm worth but I know I'm worth more than the bullies,  swearheads and rude people.   I think because I'm kind and nice caring and friendly honest too  that I'm worth a lot.   I wish I had $3,000 monthly   but I think I'm worth more than that.
