We Are People

Wed, 11/04/2015 - 00:12 -- Tanyeah

Today I was asked what defines me.

What defines me?

I want to say it’s something philosophical and rich with meaning.

I want to say it’s something that sets me apart from everyone else.

I want to say that I am always original and one of kind, but

I am only a person.

People are not objects.

We are not stationary.

We move.

We change.

We grow.

I am not stationary.

I move.

I change.

I grow.

Life has taken me through various situations,

Ones I wish I could forget.

Life has taken me in and out of people’s lives,

For reasons I may never know.

I had to move.

I had to change.

Things will never be the same.

Today I am curious.

Today I am full of life.

Today I look to my future.

Tomorrow I might be apathetic.

Tomorrow I might be dead tired.

Tomorrow I might look back at my past.

I have no definition.

And neither do you.

Because we are people.

People are not objects.

We are not stationary.

We move.

We change.

We grow.
