Que sera, sera

When I was just a little boy
I asked my father: “What will I be?
Will I be handsome, will I be rich?”
Here’s what he said to me:

“The value that society imparts to both beauty and wealth is derivative/comparative and shifting. Find value in yourself and you’ll never have to waste your short time on this planet chasing shifting fashion modes, trying to keep up with the neighbours, or satisfying other people’s goals.”
