Can You Describe What That Is - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

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? '

Okay.
Good.
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? '
