Because, after a very long time I found out why it was important for me to be me.
A very affluent businessman once said,
to be successful and earn good bread
you should always try and be yourself first
be brave in being who you are, unrehearsed.
That made me realize, where I stood
when I always wanted to be understood.
I couldn’t become like someone to make them happy
while I was actually feeling irate and snappy.
It was okay if my laugh was weird
it was okay if my speech was absurd.
It was okay if I couldn’t blend in
I was delighted being me, within.
We got created differently to be different
we couldn’t all look identical, feel the same and then be different.
We were all born discrete to be unique
we were born to encourage and critique.
Then why look down on being someone else
why not be someone who really helps?
The best thing is in doing something no one else will
to be the uncommon and original self that values could instill.
