Identification

I will not be placed

Into some neat little box. 

 

I will not fit.

 

I am not conventional, 

I will not go along with the flow, 

Biting my tongue and silencing my views.

 

I will not stand to be invalidated, 

Nor am I wittled to nothing.

 

I will be me. 

 

Everything that encompasses a person,

All the traits,

Quirks, 

Flaws, 

They make us human.

 

I am smart.

Excel in school, 

Do this, 

Do that, 

Be smarter be better be the best.

 

I am outspoken,

Do not stand for injustice,

Do not bite my tongue 

Turn my cheek 

I will stand tall.

 

I am friendly.

Lending a hand

Outreaching to those in need

Mentoring

Tutoring

Trying to improve a bleak world.

 

I learn where I can.

I am a fixer.

A believer.

A problem solver that will not stop.

A friend that will fight to the death

To defend somebody.

 

I am myself in all aspects

Not to be changed,

Altered.

 

You will not place me into a box,

I am not to conform

To suit another's wishes. 

 

I am a human being

That stands up 

Stands tall

Stands strong.

 

I am magnificent

I am myself

I am.
