Redefining Me


My God-given uniqueness
lost behind a veil of should
as I act the part assigned
and lose the whisper of could.

It's been too easy for me
to hide behind that blank wall.
As others composed my role,
I lived as one part of all.

As I chip away the mold
to discover the true me,
I challenge what's accepted
and fight the urges to flee.

After years of submitting
to what others have defined,
my choice is to learn and grow-
no longer to be confined.
