Self and Soul

By Kiana Turner

Am I who you say I am; a daughter, a sister, a Christian, a friend?
Am I who you believe I am, taking the roles on that only you can comprehend?
To measure me you have to go to my soul.
Listen to my thoughts, hear my words, watch my actions, and embrace the real me. It is not your intentions that will confine me.
It is my chosen direction that will define me.
Am I who you say I am; a daughter, a sister, a Christian, a friend?
I know the answer and I will live it until the very end.
