Pardon me for being me.

I gotta be me!

What makes a stand like being ones self

for what glory is conditioned

the other only feels the sting


of complete opposition.

For being yourself implys

much torture to the other side

for they have only one goal

to take from you

the great thing you hold

stand tall and be proud

of who you are and make it clear

that loving you comes with one thing

to accept you

with that ...there is many happy years

Nicely expressed Mia. Pretence in life causes all kinds of strife, especially when fooling oneself. Accepting and being who you are is all that we can do in life; to be honest.

It's impossible to be truly happy unless one is comfortable in their skin. You really do have to love being yourself and be willing to let the chips fall where they may. Not everyone is going to like us. Even Jesus couldn't win them all over! Like many things in life being happy is a choice. We each get to choose our own friends, lovers, and spouse. You are responsible for your own happiness. "I gotta be me" is the only way to be free!

Pardon me for being me....

I know those laughers those snobby jerks

will laugh at me whether I worry about it or not

whether I try and be conservative and hide..

Or have some fun and have some pride

why not have a ball and not care who's gonna call

true friends will be there till the end

so yes let's put our pride on the mend

and be ourselves

...a very very inspiring piece of writing (that's two 'very's by the way) and not only because it represents you but it also represents 'us' as well ..... and as I always say if you write from the heart the mind will follow and you are certainly succeeding on both counts ...

You are sending a powerful yet simple message. Be who God made you and those around you either accept you or not. If they don't fully accept you it's time to move on. Life is too short and too precious to not be yourself. Bless you for a great hub!


Momma Mia profile image

Momma Mia 5 years ago from North Carolina Author

Tis true Minntonka Twin, Life is truly too short to not allow yourself and others to love yourself as the imperfect humans we are! Thankyou for reading and your great comment!

Hope you are having a funtastic day :-}

Great poem and great advice.

We need to be the best "me" we can be and not live up to others so called standards.

You got a point but I must add that at times it is difficult for us to remain us despite what people say or think. Difficult here means courage. For instance, many Christains especially my family, and friends have tried to make me stop tolerating people of other religions or Christain sects. In fact its as if I won't find a wife because on my tolerance. I tell them that is me and that is why I am here to mark a new beginning so changing me is like stopping my existence. I mean just have to be me. Thanks.

I have fought all my life ( and won) to be myself... no matter what. It always helped me to remember.... to always care what others feel..... just not so much on what they think :) Good luck in al you are and do !
