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

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
