I try to define myself with
One word sentences
But that's like putting an elephant
In a box
One word sometimes fits only a leg, an ear, a trunk
One word sometimes fits everything but a leg, an ear, a trunk
But I keep trying
I know that one day
One word will fit everything including that leg, that ear, that trunk
I'll try on words until one fits
How does one define a tree
Based off one branch?
Look at one fruit of the branch and you miss the fruit of others
Look at one leaf but there could always be one greener
It's like the world is on my shoulders
But I have to focus on the ant sitting on my toe
It's weight is small in comparison
But maybe it's soul swallows the world's volume of characteristics
Or maybe I need to kick the ant off my toe
And wait for the next one
How long does one wait while fishing in the ocean for the perfect fish?
Or is time to settle for the smallest gain?
It's hard to see the whole puzzle from one piece
And it's hard to see the big picture when you're in it
Hard working? No
Is it impossible to define humanity when given one word?
Are there too many variations
Or are we similar to the core?
I don't encompass all humanity
I won't pretend I do
But if I can't define myself
How can I define you?
