I wrote this to decribe how we allow the opinions of others to become our identity and how it ends up hurting us. I got my inspiration from past experiences and a conversation I had with a friend.

You decide
When others deny
Your ability to shine
Radiating your beauty
You decide

Your self-worth
Torn by lies and deceit
Beholding your smile

Truth be told 
Heard by none 
Beauty unsung
While tears roll down
And emotions devour

The desert rose
Too fragile to grow
Lost and afraid
Detained by you
And your words 
You decide
