All words they use to define me.
And while they may contain embedded truth and deep meaning,
They are nothing but nouns and adjectives.
Words on a page.
Passive and cold,
Lacking action and emotion.
And I am defined by more than these.
I am living, breathing, loving, teaching, wishing.
I am breaking, healing, searching, feeling, trying.
I am adapting, seeing, planning, being, hoping.
I am writing, dreaming, solving, achieving, improving.
I am working, failing, learning, sailing, fixing.
And yet I am still not defined by these words on a page,
but by the choices and actions I have made.
