I am not my labels
But my labels are all
tiny parts of me
for without all
of the labels
that are mine
I do not need them
they need me
to hang themselves upon
I would not be
the me
I was me
before the labels
but the labels
were always there
always a part
what stuck
the parts of me together
are pieces
of the puzzle
the colors
of my kaleidoscope
all that brings
my world
to life
