“Identity”


I’m molded by the people
Who passed
Through my existence–
I’m the sum
Of the aches and joys
That caressed
And scalded my life.
Embedded, deeply,
In my skin
Are the myriad cicatrices
Bestowed upon me
By hatred and by love;
Although, I’m also
The resolute essence
That enabled me to survive.
Thus, this is who I am.
