Being Yourself


Being yourself
It's not a bad thing
People like you for you are
Other people don't
Don't get trap by people
They will used you for what they need from you
Then throw you away like tissues
I know what's like
I change myself, for one guy to improve to him I can be different, but
It didn't work
I realized that at end
I should be myself
I will found a guy that like me for me
I change to fit in and it didn't work
Just be yourself
No matter who the person is
If it does work at end
When you change yourself, go for it
It's your choice
Not mine
Do whatever it right
World out there is not easy
Remember to be yourself
Being yourself

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
