be sinning... but repent your soul 'till the last inning!
be vindictive... let others know you're afflictive!
be brave... when time comes, dig your own grave!
be rude... smile to death, imagine her peachy ass... nude!
be creative... build your dreams thaw they're so native
be smart... never let stupidity break you down or fall apart!
be confident... keep your mind and heart diligent!
be artistic... draw or chop any thing mystic!
be empiric... learn from old mistakes and memories
be friendly... but let your hostile thoughts out daily!
be an open file... let your inner child come out once in a while!
be assertive... let no one change your way or motive!
be dissonant... but learn to listen your opponent!
be a winner... but taste the defeat as a beginner!
be lovely... but keep your mind well balanced to reality!
be a star... but don't let your friends go away or too far!
be sentimental... but beware to who, some persons are judgemental!
be sober... sharpen your senses for the danger!
be obliterant... let them fear you when you shout intolerant!
be as bad as you are good... find the balance of your mood!
and if something else you want to be,
damn the critics and just BE!
it's the only way you'll find the meaning,
purpose, joy of your life's being...
