Identity (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)


They say what you do
Defines who you are
But sometimes our actions
Don’t match who we are
It is so easy to get confused
By who we are and what we do
We should encourage each other
To act from within the core
And not by the forces from the outside
Your identity is what you make of it
It is a rough sketch of missteps and triumphs
And there is nothing wrong with that
Just embrace what makes
