I Am...More

So you want to know "who I am?"

Well who I am, is more.

It cannot be summed up in adjectives and traits.

Who I am deeper than that. 

I am MORE.

I am MORE than the color of my hair, or the freckles across my nose.

I am MORE than the color of my eyes, or my crooked smile.

I am MORE than you see. 

I am MORE than the number I see on the scale.

I am MORE than the names that they yell.

I am MORE than what they see. 

I am MORE than my past experiences.

I am MORE than the girl who "lost her dad."

I am MORE than what you know.

I am MORE than the sadness that plagues me.

I am MORE than the anxiety that overwhelms me.

I am MORE than this disease.

I am MORE than I know.

I am MORE than I see. 

What I am, I am not certain of.

But I am certain of this one thing.

I. AM. MORE.
