Just Shatera

I feel like titles and labels limit me. Titles do not denote my identity. I don't want to be defined by the things I do. I don't like being called a writer or a poet or a singer. I'm fine with just Shatera. With titles come expectations. I don't want to be forced to live up to a title. Titles put us in boxes. These boxes are filled with stereotypical behavior associated with the titles. It seems to just be a cycle that I don't want a part of. It may sound funny but that's just how I see it...
