Identity: A definition of one’s self. The self perceived idea of values, lifestyle, morality, worth, acceptance, ideals, goals, virtues, passions, faith.
Intangible and powerful, hands on and off. Concrete and ever changing. Loss of identity brings loss of self-worth. Values on nothing won’t stick. Instability creates loose morals and faith erodes. Faith on the unknown requires a leg to stand on. Something known to base your life on. Goals, aspiration, high rung grabber. With no flesh on the skeleton it serves no purpose. Ribs are the ladders to a higher thought. Skull encasing the values and ideals of yesterday. Without flesh the vehicle is left in a pile on the floor.
