Everyone has something they define themselves by,

A pride they will not relinquish.

Be it grades, looks, achievements,

It does not matter what other people think, they are ours.

They define our actions, our goals, our ambition.

If they become impossible though,

If we fail or cannot reach them, what do we define ourselves by?

What then do we become?

I suppose we find new ones,

But if we don’t, what are we?

Are we nothing?

Or is it then that we start to really become something?

See the world as it really is?
