Individualism - Poem by Kelechi Kalu

One should not be looked upon with scorn
Because he of she violates the norm
We all have different ways of expression
Different ways of answering our own questions.
Life is but a short span soon to pass
Make the most of it while it lasts
Always be yourself.

Some might question your fashion
But I ask you to just imagine
What it would be like if we were all the same
In life's unpredictable game
Wouldn't it be somewhat lame?
You have a right to freedom of expression
So when they ask, give them this suggestion;
Always be yourself.
