I am (not you).

Mon, 06/09/2014 - 21:04 -- raquelr

I am more than white skin (you see).

I am more than my family's yearly salary (you want).

I am more than the slouch in my back (you think should be corrected).

I am more than the American (you think that wants to smother others).

I am more than a consumer (you want to sell to).

I am more than a woman (you believe should be quiet and cute).

I am me.

I am me. 

I am me.
