Your Story

Since reflecting on TED talk by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, ‘The Danger of a Single Story’

 

You are not a single story

You’re not one day, or year, or scene

You’re not an isolated statement

Nor one act, or choice, belief

 

You’re not defined by one relationship

Whether healthy, whole or torn

You are not your job entirely

Not your sport, school, song or storm

 

You’re not the family who bore you

Not those who raised, rejected or embraced

Neither those you’ve borne and chosen

Nor the one’s you wish would be the case

 

You’re not the nation you were born in

Nor the air space, nor the sea

Not the style of hair and body

Whatever they may be

 

You are, who you are

You will be, who you’ll be

You are every piece within your journey

Just as it is for me
