I Am Not a Number

Fri, 10/30/2015 - 13:54 -- Kinsey

I am not a number.

I am not another data point in a meaningless statistic.

I am a human, flesh and blood;

With a spirit like a lion

And a hopeless wanderer’s heart.

I am a daughter, a sister, a lover, and a friend.

I don’t know where I’m going

But I know where I’ve been.  

I strive to climb mountains

And to break free from chains;

I’ll go forth with passion, with love, and with strength. 

This poem is about: 
Me
