You don't need my name
Not because it matters
But because it's only a name
A lable, a tag, a category
I am so much more.
You don't need my age
Because the number doesn't defne me
I am more than that number
I am wiser than my years
I have more than enough scars to prove it
I am human
Flaws, instincts, and emotions galore
I am honest
Brutal, cutting, true
I am myself
And if you want to know who I am
Then you need only read.
I write like a poem, rarely in paragraphs
I feel things both differently and the same
I don't think myself typical, but I probably am
I am a work in progress.
