Identity Of A Person - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

Identity of a person
Identity signifies complexity
Identity identifies with reality
Identity is the bearer of all vanity
How does a person identify with identity?

You define yourself based on what?
They say, they say
You’re kind or moral based on what?
You’re a genius and shrewd based on what?
You make the perfect lover, look for no other

They say, they say
You’re strong without a thought it may not last long
You’ve skills since with a record you run up high bills
You are shy but no one ever talks to you or says hi
You never give up because right now you are on top

They say, they say
You are generous or gregarious when all you are is conscious
You’re innovative yet not the originator of the idea conceived

What are the facts?
That makes your identity intact
When change on identity has the last impact?
