‘To lose one’s identity’ suggests that
There must have been – a sort of ownership
Of self; a belonging to a band, a race,
A brand; a categorized face constantly
Possessed, framed to play a part on a screen.
The more one thinks, the boundaries shrink to
Reveal: that being labeled worsens
The sense of one, a blurring with the background,
A need to not keep an identity.
