What is your worth?

Is your cupboard empty

gold eaglecreating hunger from inside

are you fearful

of the statement

dropping on the floor

holding breath

holding fear inside

why did no one tell you

how to run your life

while so many sit at tables

laden with gold

what is the message

we are being told

where does our own worth

lie in this storm

who are you

when the balance is low

are you groveling in the ashes,

picking up the dregs

of others lives’

how is your self worth

when all will fall away

the crucial moment

waiting for that one voice

To say


hold out your hand

here is the gold

here is your worth

wishing it was different

yet deeper inside

the worthiness calls

to you ‘be my friend’

it cannot be


your self

a living dream

of some one else

pride inside the cupboard

do you know your own worth

without a price on your head

a heart in your hand

your worth is not written

on paper

figures on a sheet

it lies in the hearts

of every one you meet

About Caroline Carey

Caroline is an English Grandmother and an aspiring crone~elder, an author of four books, a speaker and innovative and creative teacher, offering her work via workshops and gatherings online as well as internationally. By adapting the religious education insisted on by her family, she was able to recognise her own innate connection to God/Spirit and has been on a spiritual path since childhood. She is a champion of music, dance and poetry as healing tools since she was four years old and developed an innate understanding of the soul’s journey, a connection to physical embodiment through movement, theatre and the creative arts. Her work is harmonious with nature. Her journey has manifested as her own personal training into eldership and crone-hood, carrying the wisdom needed for stability and balance in individuals, relationships, families and communities. Mothering her six, now adult, children, gave Caroline the art of play, creativity, story-telling and opened up the deep surrender and unconditional love that motherhood can bestow. Caroline has trained in many modalities of dance, therapeutic and spiritual teacher trainings since 1986. She is a writer who has published her autobiography and four other books about her spiritual work. Her latest book, 'Middle Earth Wisdom' will be published soon. She lives in UK with her husband Ben Cole, a film-maker, a director who works with men’s initiation groups. They often offer work together, incorporating dance, presentation and film.
