If you try to say that you can describe me you’re wrong
I’ve faced adversity and have since become strong,
The words that I write are just a glimpse of my own insight
Pain and tribulation has made my blank canvas full of tears,
Dark marks that try to describe who I am, trying to tell the story of my past,
But I’m in control of my future, my preservation will last.
My goals are to become who I want to be,
Are those the means on which you try to define me?
I’ll tell you about my life so far,
Just promise not to judge me from my deep scars.
A now normative life has given me so much strife,
A father who was never there has seemed to disappear
From a young age giving me fear,
I’ve learned to teach myself on how to be a man,
Be kind, brave and courteous to others
That’s my plan.
To never leave my family is what’s important to me,
Providing for them is what I need.
A life long struggle is what I face
Diagnosed with OCD keeps me repeating my pace
Through a constant fight I will strive to accomplish my goal
to help others wh suffer like I.
I try to better myself everyday
Always changing in everyway
You ask how I would define myself, but I don’t have just one word
I have many but to state them would be absurd,
To call myself one word for who I’ve become isn’t fair to me or to anyone.
I would fail at this task you have assigned to me
Because growing as a person means to become free
Free from words that place chains on my self
Guiding me to who I’m supposed to be
Ever-changing you’ll never be able to define who I am
I am undefinable
