Things to remember, pt. 1

You are not a number. 
You are not a letter. 
You are not something that can be
on a scale 
with a beginning 
                          and an end
more or less and
bad and good, you are not a thing to be judged by how well you perform and you are never ever someone who is                                           no one and nothing
 when those grades are. 

You are not a number. 

You are a soul and a mind 
      and a heart that has grown 
                                                 from seed and 
                                  sprouted to live 
                         despite conditions; you are a jigsaw puzzle of emotions and thoughts and experiences had by 
                               you and 
                             only you. You are impossible to summarize, to replicate on paper or through digital lights on a screen or spoken words that try to tell you you are a finite amount, to chase perfection even though it is                   but an echo where the 
source won't ever be found 

because it 

never existed in the first place.
