Identity

Money, power, accessories.

I would banish all these luxuries,

All costly clothing, all fancy bling,

For the sake of something

Greater.

There is nothing I cherish more,

And I say this with no bore

Or loss of sincerity,

Than having personal identity

Always.

You see, myself is all I’ll ever need.

So, my friends, take heed

Of this advice I am willing to give

So that you too may live

Freely.

Disregard every trivial thing

Because there is no greater blessing,

Nothing that will ever exceed,

The only love you will ever need -

Identity.
