Be Who You Are


Be who you are
Accepting yourself is a start
Open your eyes
Look at yourself
Know you are someone
You can achieve something
Put your dreams and goals to use
Go out and put a smile on someone's face
Or a smile on your own face

It all begins with loving yourself
Because if there is no love then what's in your heart?
It's never to late to be who you are
So take back your life and start living

Don't worry about your ethnicity
Don't worry about rude comments
Don't worry about frowns
Don't worry about the whispers
Don't worry about the judgments

Because thirty years from now it won't matter
But what will matter is what you've learned
And how you used it

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
