Price Tag

Prominently displayed,
And in bold letters,
So that you may not miss it,
The price tag.
There it is.
Seated smugly.
Boldly proclaiming to all,
The price for the product or service.
It is a straight forward business,
You pick and go,
At the right price.
But pray I ask,
What about those things that don’t  come with price tags?
How is the value determined?
What is the price tag for;
Generosity?
Righteousness?
Honesty?
Patience?
Peace?

  1. Indeed. And we have to scream out for our essence to be worth more than any price they can name. And surround ourselves with people and things that raise our value to where it’s all worth facing a world that marks us down that way. 😦
