Definition and Ownership

You are not even cold
and the redefinition begins

As if you were a
speechless dog or cat

They project their fears
their wishes
themselves onto you

You no longer own your Self
it resides in the care of others
it only belongs to them

While you live
the truth of you
if there is such a thing

consists of both
their interpretation of you
and your experience of you

While you live
you can attempt
to correct any disparity

Once you die
the thing that you call you
is gone forever

Only the other you
their “you”
remains
