Who?

I am not my body
I am not my scars
I am not my health
I am not my sickness
I am not my stature
I’m not my abnormalities
I am not my size
I am not my fitness
I am not my shape
I am not my strength
I am not my width
I am not my length
I am not my crooked
I am not my straight
I’m not my chromosomes
Not my genetic state

I am not my mind
Not my abnormalities
I am not my scars
I am not my sanity
I am not my health
I am not my sickness
I’m not my intelligence
I am not my fitness
I am not my nooks
I am not my crannies
I am not my secrets
I am not my ideologies
I am not my thoughts
I am not my focus
I am not my dreams
Not my restlessness

I am not my emotions
I am not my fears
I am not my anger
I am not my tears
I am not my scars
I am not my past
I am not my depression
I am not my trash
I am not my tremors
I am not my lust
Not my temptations
I am not my loves
I am not my disgust
I am not my contempt
I am not my pleasure
Not my discontent

Who am I?
