Favorite Quote:
By Myself: One does not grow from discovery, but from understanding.

I speak three languages
Yet not one of them lets me truly express myself
I cannot show people who I really am
You, the reader, cannot comprehend the true meaning behind my writing

Not even my family, my flesh and blood, understands
They see only a fraction of myself

I am like a dot
So small you cannot even see if I am filled in or empty
I am a dot
On paper
On the ceiling
In a painting
On your shirt
You do not know my history or my purpose
All you know is that I am there
You can never understand me

I have no identity

I came up with the idea from a school assignment, I decided to turn the idea of the assignment upside-down.
