…Identity is revealed only when it is taken away
“Identity is not the face,
Identity is not the trait,
Neither is it the success pace,
Nor is it the personality grace.
Let alone it being a cliché phrase,
Or did you think,
It’s some religious faith?
My child, it’s alarming that it’s none,
It’s even not tongue,
Identity is a product of the problems you have overcome
And the person you have become!”
