Searching for definition and purpose through trial and error

Identity

I've always defined myself as what I am to others. A leader, a learner, a lover, a protector, a son, a figure, a pair of hands.

Though I possess understanding, I lack ability. I can lead others to what I cannot do.

Though I know much, I understand little. I learn from those around me.

Though romantic in concept, I fail in practice. I love love but cannot find it sincerely.

Though I guard many, I heal none. I delay necessary change.

Though I carry a name, I do not fit it. An outsider within my own family.

Though I am regarded highly, the pedestal is rotten. Growth results in pain and falling.

Though I am complex in identity, I am simple in function. Longing for a function I don't understand.
