We are more than Labels

Who am I?

I am more than,
Labels and words.

I am more than,
Terms and meanings.

I am more than my:
Ethnicity,
Background,
Class,
Sexuality,
Religion,
Gender,
Class,
And appearance.

I am more than,
We are more than.

The power of words,
Can cut through metal,
And stitch broken hearts,
Millions of words,
Float around,
To hurt and break,
To heal and conquer.

All words,
In speech and dialogue,
and interactions.

My words, our words,
Unite us,
In a social equilibrium.
