Poem: You Are Not, 2017

You are not your culture
You are not your skin colour
You are not your language

You are not the thread of your hair
You are not your complexion
You are not what they say you are

Your upbringing does not define you
Your upbringing is never your end
Your upbringing is just a stepping stone

Your future is brighter than the sun
To enter, you just have to believe it
