Self I-dentity

Ghana, Africa 07'

Myself. Myself is me.

Not a collective, not a pair, or three

Just me. Myself I-dentity.

This resounds in me,

Through the pain,

I fight to win and understand

never allowing my emotions to get the upper hand.

Control I possess in my inherent qualities,

the savage, rambunctious, loud me.

Control I speak.

Dignity what my character is trying to reach.

Not peculiar or unique. Just me.

I’m my own identity.

Consistency is key. It will forbade actions or impulses,

whether irrationally.

sinfully I speak… thinking,

If my Mama heard or saw that,

I’d surely get a whoppin’… I refused to go hunt looking,

In friends or even family,

to make up the distinct components of me.

I challenge the exterior

to match the insider me. Soft and cuddly. 

Repeat.

Myself. Myself is me.

Not a collective, not a pair, or three.

Just me. Myself I-dentity.

It resounds in me.
