Identity Of I


Identity is not what I promise others
Identity is what I do when I am alone
Identity is what I think of others
Knowing all the hatred they've shown

Identity is what every wound reminds me
Identity is what I learn and what I pass by
Identity is what I see in the mirror
After giving my best try

Identity is what I make out of my given chance
Identity is what I accept and what I deny
No one else has control over me
Life is about me, and what I identify

    Identity being the inner value of oneself-but then to have it extend outward for all to benefit is quite challenging. We must tread respectfully with love when harnessing the power within ourselves. Such a great responsibility, indeed. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
