Nor the size of clothes you wear
You are not a weight
You are not your name
Or the dimples in your cheek
You are all the books you read
And all the words you speak
You are your croaky morning voice
You’re the sweetness in your laughter
And every tear you have cried
You’re the songs you sing so loudly
When you know you are alone
You’re the places that you ‘ve been to
And the one that you call home
You’re the things that you believe in
And the people you love
You’re what you think
And the future you dreams of
You’re made of so much beauty
But it seems that you forget
When you decided that you were defined
By all the things you’re not.”
