Be Yourself

“Be yourself,
but with a little less this
and a little more that,
and try not to do most everything
you’re doing.”

“Be yourself,”
it’s amazing how often it’s heard
and how quickly it’s discarded
the minute originality
breaks the mold.

Be yourself,
it’s authentic that’s priceless.
Originals drive imaginations and innovations
more than blurred copies
can comprehend.

  2. Yes Christina it sounds an easy thing to do but we are repeatedly bombarded with what we should be like that a person can lose their way. Love the poem have a great day.
