Who are you?
You’re not the man in the mirror,
That’s only your reflection,
You’re not who they say you are,
That’s only their perception,
Who are you outside the names they gave you?
Who are you outside being their son or daughter?
Who are you outside being their brother or sister?
See, we often define ourselves in regards to others,
We weigh our worth based on the way they value us,
What happens when one day they no longer value you,
Will you still value you?
Your self worth should be intrinsic,
It should come from inside you,
So, even when no one is able to see your value,
You will still value you.
