Identity - Poem by Poornima Kanasen

Is it a state or a fact?
If it is a state, then why isn’t it a fact?
A state when it shows alikeness,
Personality portrays the fact of it,
It is an association of both,
Yet, who you are matters,
The sameness in you, creates your own style,
Identitā s, unclothe the real you,
Brandishing you always,
Lavishing upon you a significant life,
Allowing you to be accepted …
The way you are,
Revealing the inner self of yours,
The uniqueness and the semblance,
It bequeaths you,
For you to relish upon,
Interchangeable, you are not,
It opposes any dissimilarity in you,
Any disparity, any dissemblance, any anomaly,
Identitā s, pardoning you to be you…...
