Be Proud Of Who You Are. - Poem by Liz Munro

Why try to be someone you're not?
Who are they to say 'big' ain't hot,
Ego and all that crap matter no longer to me,
Because I can look in the mirror and love the person I see.

Sick of trying 'cos you can't
Can't live or match up to their expections,
But hey, it's brains not beauty, that make successful nations.

So look in the mirror and be proud of who you are,
Don't let others dampen your blinding, shiny star,
If this you can do,
You'll overlap their ignorance and shine so very far.

    I think a lot of people will feel the
    sentiments of your poem.
    If you can love yourself and not
    worry what others think, happiness
    wont be far away. I enjoyed reading this.
    Kindest Regards Slim. x.
