What Is A Life Worth?

We are all fair game;

children in strollers;

police sitting in patrol cars;

elders walking down the block;

women asleep at home.

Who do you see?

Can you see me?

My life?

My worth?

Am I enough for you

to extend a kind word;

a smile;

a thought filled with respect?

I see you in me.

Your being excites me.

While all I wish

is for you to let me be.
