Poem about Being Yourself

Love yourself, love life..
Love yourself, love life..
Believe in YOU
Believe in YOU

You can only be yourself,

No point imitating another -

You will only end up a phony.

Can't have someone else's body;

Another person's hair;

A different face -

You were born to be you

And they were born as they.

Inside our hearts

We all sing our own tunes,

Each one as special as the other.

Have the courage to be the real you,

Have the confidence to walk your own steps,

Be brave enough to wear your own skin.

You can't shine if you hide

Beneath a mask; a veneer -

Following the others just means

The real 'you' is lost.

You are the original,

An authentic, 'one-off' mould -

Don't be a cheap copy,

But relish in the truth.

When people look at you they would rather not

See their own selves, reflected back -

You are great as you are..
You are great as you are..
Don't be awkward - embrace yourself!
Don't be awkward - embrace yourself!
Walk tall, be proud...
Walk tall, be proud...
It all comes down to belief...
It all comes down to belief...

They hope to meet someone new.

We all learn from each other,

We all have different strengths

In the same way that we all

Have our weaknesses.

We are all on a journey of growth -

Even those who seem to have it all.

It's just a myth - perhaps they hide it well.

Inside, they are just the same as you

With the same fears

And the same dreams.

Don't be afraid to speak your own words,

If people choose not to hear

Then it's their loss.

Don't be a shadow

But shine forth, radiate,

With everything that you are.

The spark of the sun brings happiness,

You have the light in your heart

And as you shine, you warm people.

You can do it already,

You are good enough as you are.

Don't wish to be someone else,

Wasted moments can never come back.

Just live each day by being true -

True to your heart, true to your soul,

True to you.

Just live each day by being true -

True to your heart, true to your soul,

True to you.
