What I have done is not who I am
a sentence unfinished,
but written with plan.
oh, I’d gush about my selflessness
but who am I to say this
only others can think that of me, right?
so here I struggle to find my identity
is it my clothes? my hobbies? or is it my genetic makeup that makes me me?
yes and no
my identity is simply what makes me unique
every living being has a different one of these
lailah is odd, just let everyone else
I am opinionated and passionate
I don’t take pride in ignorance, I am sympathetic
I try not to let things get me down
I focus on the beauty all around
but my identity changes every second
SO, who am I?
what I have done is not who I am
I am a sentence unfinished
but, the punctuation is so far
I plan to spend my future giving
to those who need to receive
but, the punctuation is still SO far
so I’ll build my subject and predicate with inspiration from those around me
to create the most beautiful sentence I can
who I want to be
