28.       SELF-WORTH

Important is our ownership of the world,
it is our self-worth
which the individual bring forth,
its right to share in the world
where we were created equal by the Lord.

We choose our self-worth ourselves
together with other elves
it is this world’s gold we delve
by the months we call twelve
and created by another but ourselves.

It is more than the physical
we claim our worth
like a greedy dwarf
bring our souls themselves forth
over the equal ownership which is spiritual.
