April 23, 2017: What it Means to be Defined

The definition of beautiful does not require the word skinny. 
The definition of love does not require sex. 
The definition of honesty does not require a lie. 
The definition of fate does not require a fortune cookie. 
The definition of trust does not require paperwork. 
The definition of family does not require blood.
The definition of hope does not require prayer.

The definition of marriage requires respect.
The definition of friendship requires a friend. 
The definition of remorse requires feelings. 
The definition of betrayal requires being selfish. 

The definition of me;
that requires heart and empathy.
