Sandcastles

Do you know
What hurts the most?
It’s not the hit to your pride
It’s not the hit to your heart
But the hit to your self respect.
That’s what hurts the most.

There are moments in life
When you let go of it.
And then no matter
How hard you clench,
It becomes like sand
Slipping through your fingers.

So don’t. Don’t let anyone
Make you lose your worth.
Make sandcastles
Around your self respect
And guard it.
Against others, against yourself.
