Poem: Be You

In life,

you must learn

to be you.

At times,

it may seem hard

but doing it

is a good start

to lifelong happiness.

You must not try

to please people

especially if you

aren’t pleasing you.

Do not live

by other’s standards.

Live on your own.

If you believe

in something,

when others don’t.

Don’t be disappointed

or give up.

If you happen to be wrong,

at least you know,

you were being you.

You shouldn’t have

to follow

a pattern,

or follow

in anyone’s footsteps.

Make your own.

We were all born

as individuals

and should live

as individuals.

Accomplish that

by being you.

Do not worry

or be scared.

Just be you.
