Be Yourself - Poem by Dr. Antony Theodore
Be conscious about being truthful.
Resist the urge to accommodate my truth away.
Being who I really am is not forbidden
just because others are uncomfortable with me.
The cost of not being who you are
is busying oneself pleasing all others.
Then a precious part of you die inside.
There will be internal conflict to deal with.
If we choose to avoid conflict with others,
we will eventually breed conflict within ourselves.
Attend to your inner lives
Even when it creates discord
with those who would have us
be something else according to their will.
