    Identity

    My image is nothing
    There is no thought behind it just
    Me and there is nothing else just me
    I am not you or her
    He or him
    Me
    In
    True
    Blue
    Form
    Ghetto if you wanna call me dat

    Colorless/ or color blind in daylight

    Identity is what you place upon me
    Kin to the next man/ cause I walk with id so you can id me when you need too!

    I am the grave of the people who
    I have not touched/ the lost souls who can see me and I can't reach/ teach me to see you and I will show you the light
    I am
    I and there is nothing else just I
    I am not you or her
    He or him
    Me
    In
    True
    Blue
    Form
    Ghetto if you wanna call me dat

    Cause I am the identity of dreams
    Of naked children/ humans in the pure-ess form...

    Raped and feared/ cause I see god in me can you
    I still stick
    Like glue

    Elmer’s

    Patient
    Enjoyable
    Respectable
    Righteous
    Independent

    I give a lot and take nothing back just my identity
    Be a-fraid.
    I am I and there is nothing else just I
    I am not you or her
    He or him
    Me
    In
    True
    Blue
    Form
    Ghetto if you wanna call me dat
    I am black like the night
    Strapped just right
    That is who and what I am
    If you know me
    Then you know
    I am in bedded in the lines of the poem

    Patient
    Enjoyable
    Respectable
    Righteous
    Independent

    I am not you or her
    He or him
    Me in
    True
    Blue
    Form
    Ghetto if you wanna call me dat

    Try to live with me and be who you is
