Can You Describe What That Is

Okay class!
Which of the following,
Expresses one with identity?
A. One with image and tries to impress.
B. One with a dignity regardless how dressed.
C. One who confesses what they own to possess.
D. One who has presence but speaks about themselves less.

'I have a question? '

What is it?

'Which one lives in a house with a wide TV screen?
And do they have a BENZ and have plenty of bling? '

You are missing the message here.
That has nothing to do with identity.

'Then I know I've already failed this test.
What other identity is there to have? '

The 'identity' one should have of 'self'.

'I'm lost.
Can you describe what that is so I can see it? '

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
