Identity

IDENTITY

Why must people define themselves so rigidly?
Why do we have to choose just one side of polarity?
Why can`t I hold them both and be as big as I can be?
Must I fit in a box?

This box we call identity
Point on the line of possibility.
The urge for singularity
Extends into infinity
The quest for who I am`s a key
To unlocking the mystery

This thing called self is much bigger than imagined
Could be both gay and redneck and still not even fathom the extent of my identity
So many hats I put on and then I take them off again
Am I flexible, from Masculine to Feminine
And what`s beyond? (5x)

This box we call identity
Point on the line of possibility.
The urge for singularity.
Extends into infinity.
The quest for who I am`s a key
To unlocking the mystery

And with this, the sense of self is less, and less is more, when it comes to selflessness!
