You don't define me

I am a nurse and a mother of three grown children. I have been writing poetry since I was a teenager. I love expressing myself on paper. I am a pastor's wife. We pastor a small church in Media, Pa.

You don't define me
I'm more than that
My strength of heart
Is springing back
You try to guess, to shape my mold
I'm more , I say, than you can hold
New things in me proceed to grow
I'm more than who you think you know
My aspirations reach the sky
My hopes, my dreams, they keep me high
You don't define me
I'm not that one
You thought you hooked
You thought you won
Another me will not be tricked
Is bigger than your mental trip
