Boxed in

You want to put me in a box
Tell me what I am
And what I am not

But I am me

I am strong
‘Pushy’

I am kind
‘Weak’

I am vulnerable
‘Needy’

I am White
‘Black’

I am passionate
‘A kid on a gap year’

You see what you want to see
You see who you want me to be
But I am all of these things

At the same time
At different times

I am me
And my box is big enough
To hold me Not contain me
To protect me
Not limit me

And if I need a bigger box
A different box
I will find one

You cannot box me in
I will not allow myself to be put in your box
I am me
