Measure Of Importance

DownUp 0

“I am important.”
Everyone laughs at me
“That’s not true.” They said.
“You can’t even see.”

“You are important.”
Mom tells me.
“You can do great things.”
But I can’t even see.

“You are important.”
My best friend says
“You’re so much fun.”
But I can’t even see.

“You’re not important.”
Says the boy at school.
He laughs as I stumble.
“You can’t even see.”

“I’m not important.”
I say, 5 years later.
“I can’t do anything.
I can’t even see.”

“You are important.”
Mom tells me.
“You can do anything.”
But I can’t even see.

“You are important.”
My sister frowns.
“You’re the only one of you.”
But I can’t even see.

“You are important.”
My best friend laughs.
“You are amazing.”
But I can’t even see.

“You are important.”
Says the boy at school.
“I think you’re awesome.”
Maybe I can see.

I am important
I’m told every day.
My heart becomes my eyes
And now I can see.
