Identity

Location

Tall short

Fat skinny

Nice mean

Dumb brainy

Black white

Gay straight

So many adjective to describe oneself

As if we are categorizing something on a shelf

How can a couple of words describe someone?

Without knowing the person they’ve become

I am a girl that can never be defined

If you try it will just waste your time

Everyone has a picture they want to crop me in

Forget about the person I have always been

A picture can say a thousand words

What if mine says 3?

How can someone expect so little to describe the person iv come to be

You can hit me with your words of admiration or hate

Happiness or anger

At the end of the day , your word means nothing if you’re a stranger
