World Debt by Liliana Yao
We are not in debt to anyone but ourselves.
We give the world what we yearn to receive,
hoping for the world to reciprocate our deeds.
In the process, we simply neglect our own needs.
No one seems to appreciate or recognize,
that our acts of kindness don’t cost a thing.
At the expense of our dignity, we drop to our knees,
when we should drop the people-pleasing.
Pick ourselves up and realize we are deserving of something free;
be kind to ourselves and we’ll be at peace.
