Worth a World | A Poem by Troy Cabida

You wear skin once soft,
now steel shining, adorned in scars
that tell a story you don’t need to explain.

In whispers
they’ll talk about how much you’ve grown,
how many battles you’ve dived into and won,

how high you’re flying,
soaring from all the obscurity,
because now

every piece of earth you step on
can become yours, so choose to be luminous,
you’re worth the world.

Now you can sleep, feed, give yourself
peace, all the time to heal
and hear yourself again.

Hold on tight, embrace yourself because
you’re worth the whole world.
