You are not the number of A’s on your report card.
You are not the rounded number of your GPA.
You are not the number of bills in your pocket, nor are you the number of 0’s in your bank account.
You are not the name on the tag in your clothes,
You are not your mistakes.
You are not a weight.
You are not the color of your skin.
You are the places you’ve left bits of your heart in.
You are the number of smiles you’ve impacted onto others
and the number of bursts of laughters you’ve caused.
You are the promises you’ve kept.
You are the vulnerable secrets at 3 AM.
You’re the people you love.
You’re the places you will go.
You’re the “thank you”s
The “I miss you”s
And especially the “I love you”s
You’re the strength you give others, even when yours is all gone.
You’re the place that you call home.
