I’m real because I can be.

I’m real because I can be
I have nothing to hide
no appearances to keep up
I’m just a nameless person
because I am not known
in a world of somebodies
writing off words
letting go of thoughts
existing here
the same as you
the somebodies
and all the others forgotten names
trying to exist
knowing they exist
and wondering is that enough?
YES
and no
depending on your own worth
and what defines success
because it’s not a definitive
it’s a choice
a thought
that changes
between me
and to you
because we get to decide
what success is
and what defines us
as we are
and no you do not
have to listen to pop culture
and the biggest hits on the radio
to determine
what happy is
because sometimes
it’s the same
and other times it isn’t
for being human
means we get to think
and we get to determine
and we get to find us
and that is different
between person to person.

Thank for reading.
