Define Me: An Original Poem

Don’t define me
By the actions of
Those I’ve
survived

Don’t define me
By those who
Would have me
deprived

Don’t define me
By the people
Who pushed me
Down

Don’t define me
By the fat that
Hides me
surrounds

Don’t define me
By the actions
My body can not
Perform

Don’t define me
By the actions
You think are the
Norm

Don’t define me
By the tears
You don’t watch
Me cry

Don’t define me
When it seems
Too much to
Get by

Don’t define me
By the medicine
That eases
my pain

Don’t define me
By the shattered
Pieces of my
Broken brain

Define me
By the love
I carry for
You

Define me
By the prayers I say
When the day
Is through

Define me
By my love
For my fellow
Man

Define me
By the times
God used me
To make can’t
Into can

Define me
By the love
I show for
My family

Define me
By the God
You know
Within me.
