YOU!

YOU

Our parents our schools, society,

We have grown up with them telling us who we should be,

Your Religion your culture, all the way through,

Without all that input, who is it in you?

Who is it you’ll follow, like sheep till the end

For it’s a new fashion, a massive new trend!

To THINK for oneself, BE who YOU really are

When you can find YOU, you’ll transcend really far

Don’t listen to rumours, they fill you with doubt

Find out the truth, of what your life’s about!

You can only do this, by following your dreams

Don’t fall down with knock backs, as hard as that seems

Believe in yourself, and follow your goals

To get to the top, you will fall down some holes

But don’t be discouraged, see yourself through

Rise to the TOP! And find the YOU that’s In YOU!!!!

    You're right when you say you will fall down some holes. I've been in some deep ones and try to always climb out. Great write! Dan C ps. Thanks for your comments on my work.

    When I grow up I want to be__? My gifts, talents, passions, and what really fires me up are__? Well, I haven't decided yet..I guess that I just haven't bloomed..Keep the creative pen flowing..Sara(Oh! I am a grandmother and old enough to be retired.)
