I Am Not

I am not my friends
I am not my possessions
I am not my grade point average
I am not the school I attended
Or the career I chose
Or the praise I received
Or the criticism I resented

I am not the car I bought
Black tie or business casual
I am not my voice
Or the scars on my skin
I am not the white furniture
In my white apartment
Or the address on my mail
Or the books I have read
Not the ink in my passport
Not the words I have said
Or this sentence I have written
These sentences I have written.

I am not the sum of my birthdays
Or the valentine unrequited
I am not the person I slept with
Or the one I woke up to
I am only what I worship
In forgetting who you are.
