You Do Your Own Thing - Poem by Francis Duggan

Whilst others do follow the leader you always do go your own way
And you are just an individual that's what others of you do say
You are not a tribal sort of person nor to any beliefs you don't cling
And whilst others are in their own small groups you always are doing your own thing,
You are not a part of a cliche you do seem quite different to most
You always leave your deeds do the talking of yourself you never do boast
Whilst others are seeking attention out of the limelight you do stay
And whilst others brag of their achievements of yourself you have nothing to say,
You have always been the quiet achiever and you do not crave to be well known
And you do not leave others to think for you as you've got a mind of your own
You are not a member of a political party and you are not one who play sport
Yet you are a very good person you've never stood before a judge in a court,
You do your own thing and you mind your own business and you never boast of how great you are
Though for to meet your very equal one would have to travel quite far.
