You Are: A Recovery Poem

You Are:
Not your disease.
Not your choices.
Not your past hurts.
Not your future dreams.
You are more than all of that.
You Are:
Not your relationships.  
Not the mistakes you’ve made.
Not someone defined by outside sources.
Not the thoughts in your mind.
Not the skin on your body.
You are more than what you can wrap your mind around.
You Are:
Not what others think of you.
Not what others feel.
Not what others expect.
Not another person.
Not a disappointment.
Not worthless.
Not invisible.
Not your talent.
You are much more than you can wrap your mind around.
You are free.
You are.
