More Than You Know

Wed, 09/09/2015 - 23:12 -- nadia_

I am more than your words and sideways glances

My knowledge is ever expanding and pushing foward

I am more than "act like a lady" and "settle for this instead"

Succes is the goal and hard work is my path

I am more than a bystander and a follower of words

My opinions are my own and my creed is love

I am more than just my body and your standards of beauty

My beauty is my soul and how I treat others is my standard 

I am more than a stereotype and prejudiced beliefs

My background is a nation but my entirety is human

I am more than what you believe me to be and I am more than what you know 

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world
