Be Proud Of Who You Are

 

I look into the mirror
wanting to see my soul.

My unique personality

not part of the mass whole.

I need to follow my dreams

which are born from my heart.

Say that things that I feel.

Give expression to my art.

In this busy fast paced world.
it is easy to follow the crowd.

To let my voice be drowned out

by voices strident and loud.

They think they have the answers

of how my life should be.

But the one who really does

is the voice inside me.

If we are true to ourselves

we will have peace and pride.

Let us express who we really are.

Our uniqueness let us not hide.

In being original we show others

that it is good oneself to be.

Soon they will get the message

and also want to be free.

Maybe one day they will awaken

to their own individuality.

Look into the mirror with pride
and be glad at who they see.

Yes, we must be true to ourselves. This I have learned.
