Linking up with The Gypsy Mama for Five Minute Friday (or Saturday). On Identity.
Inspired by JJ Heller's song True Things.
~Clothes I'm wearing, I'm not you.
Picture in a photograph, you don't define me.
Car, you just get me around.
Money, you can't control me.
"Things I lack," that's not the stuff I'm made of.
Words I love to write, you're still not who I am.
Mistakes, Truth says I'm made up of more than you.
Food, don't try to enslave me.
Scars, you can't puncture my heart.~
"Would you say again what you said to me, I am loved and I am free...
To Your love I'm waking up.
In Your love I'm waking up."
Would you say with me what true things are no match for the other things that clamor for your identity and your attention in this world? If you watch the video, it pauses in a few places (sorry about that) but I liked this version because I feel like it's real and raw and that's the stuff I think we're made of, too.
