Worth

You don’t need any human to validate you. 
Human worth is free and plentiful.
An inherent state of nature.
Independent of talent or skill.
Abundant to the poorest beggar.
Liberal to the lamest leper.
Accessible in the deepest “sinner.”

It’s merely kept shrouded in our ignorance.
Encapsulated in our guilt.
Genetically sacrificed to increase our chances for survival. 
Buried deep within our psyche.
Completely tossed out by demon-pathologies.

But re-awakened by the biological martyrs.
Freed from its fetters by the sages and saints.
Strewn across the Earth, ameliorating our trials and tribulations.
Growing furtive like the tree of Nirvana.
To feed our soul-starved existences –
Again.

-Raymond Li
