I Am More

I am not the color of my skin.


I am not my semi-squinted eyes or my small nose.


I am not my small mouth and my round face.


I am not my small stature or my black hair.


I am not simply my Asian background.


I am my determination and hard work.


I am my compassion and my kindness.


I am my intelligence and my strength.


I am my happiness and my reliability.


I am not the stereotype of my ethnicity. 


I am more than what you see on the surface.


I am much more.


I will always be much more.
