It's Time You Know Your Worth - Poem by Deidre Dixon

Like a 2-carat diamond set in platinum cut in the princess shape
The value of it really began while it was in its original state
Like fine wine that has matured for years and developed exquisite taste
The value of it really started in the vineyard when it was only grapes
Like caviar that is served at affairs that are the most prestigious
The value of it is determined while it is just an egg inside of a fish
Like a dozen red roses brilliantly arranged and presented in a crystal vase with Baby's Breath all around
The value of them really began in Spring when they were just planted seed in the ground
Like fine art displayed in an intricately carved frame and placed in a mansion for all to admire
The value of it really started as a canvas, a variety of colorful paints and an artist who was inspired
Though all of these things have great qualities, are expensive and, in some cases, are priceless
Only someone with the knowledge of their worth will go beyond the desire of these things to possess
They will care for these things no matter what the expense because they are the desires of their heart
Surely, your life is worth much more than diamonds, wine, caviar, roses or a frame that displays fine art
Like a diamond you have endured the test of time and have resisted the hardest of things
Like fine wine you have matured with time and joy to all who know you your smile brings
Like the delicacy of caviar you deserve to be treated like a woman of prestige and grace
Like a dozen long-stemmed red roses you are cherished, loved and embraced
Like fine art you should be adorned like a queen in her court and royally respected
You should realize your value as a woman, mother, grandmother and great grandmother who won't be neglected
Forget about mistakes made in the past that only come back to lie about what you deserve
God has forgiven you for the apologies of your heart; He was listening and He has heard
There is so much for you to gain in life, if you would allow life to give you these pleasures
You must believe that nothing is too good for you to possess; even the desires your heart treasures
There is a plan and a purpose with you in mind; it's the reason your mother gave birth
I said all of this to say to you, "It's time you know your worth."

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem is for those women out there who have allowed life to beat you up because you felt you deserved it. We all make poor choices in life at times, but it does not lessen your value. Being able to acknowledge our mistakes and make necessary adjustments is of great value in itself. Being courageous enough to ask for forgiveness and forgiving ourselves will free us from the bondage of thinking we are not worthy of greatness or success. When you realize your worth, you will be worth that much more to the universe. Free yourself!
