Be Yourself - Poem by Chan Mongol

Trust yourself and have faith in you
Bullies can't hurt you, they are few!
Why fear! Be smart and take my note
Nobody ever sees you when you vote!
Don't disclose it and protect privacy
Nakedness is a shame and messy!
Do not discriminate on religion, color
Try keeping your sentiment higher!
Culture, character all are already in you
Born as the human, don't add anything new!
A believer or nonbeliever, doesn't a matter
You are on your own, just a go getter!
Temples and leaders never gave peace
Everyday, be yourself without their thesis!

Topic(s) of this poem: belief, independence

    Thanks a lot for sharing this subject, Chan! I have enjoyed a very lot Brilliant lines concerning the Title.

    Though the advice given here has some validity, the poem could have been made better eliminating some of the rhymes. Several of them serve the making of them but not the poetic meaning. In a poem like this one, I wish more space to give it good treatment. (Report)Reply

    I love the main idea expressed in these well written verses.
    Searching forever for truth. Let us open all windows of our mind, heart and soul, let all knowledge come in, but then put it all through a filter of wisdom and let our deepest inside decide.
    Thought provoking poem.

    Nice one.. real 10

    This is the only option
    we must understand its relation
    what do we gain from shedding the bloodshed?
    in that case, we all shall be dead in coming years
