Be Yourself by Fritzgerald Paul


Brothers and sisters have you ever wondered why do we kill one another?
Is it because each one of us want to be on top like oil on water?
Or is it because we like to watch one another suffer
Brothers and sisters please be yourself
Just because your friends act in a certain way
that doesn't mean you have to act the same
doing so don't bring anything but shame
In this world that we are living in it's either they like you or hate you
we all have our unique point of view
that is the reason life has different flavors like beef stew
If you don't fit in a particular environment
don't rush into it because we all have self development
Brothers and sisters don't be a follower
always try to be a leader
Because self identity is like a protocol
if you don't acknowledge it, it will lead to a downfall
Last but not least Brothers and sisters love one another

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
