WORTH YOUR SALT

Know what is worth a lot
to you. . .

Then do
what you will have to do
to get it. . .

But if
the cost is more
than your own store
or family makes,

still stay
to your own self
quite true,
and to your lofty dreams,
and earthly neighbors, too–

No lying, stealing,
and no fakes,
no getting too indebted,

And think again,
that value more to understand,
so you can view
anew
your fine, grand plan–
and carefully,
boldly,
lovingly
reset it.
