I Am Not

It's not about what I am,

It's about what I'm not

Because I'm not about to 

Tell you I'm creative, fun, and smart

I'm not confined to expectations,

Regulations, or damnations;

I'm not a side piece or side order

My personality has no borders

I can't and won't put myself in a box

That'd be lying a box is what I am not

I'm not confined to certain standards or rules

I am birds and I am trees, I am rocks and I am jewels

I am sunshine, I am nightfall, I am so much more

You ask what I am but that shuts so many doors.
