Be Yourself

Zelda is who I'll always be
No one can change me
Not even in an eternity.

I'll always be myself,
There's nothing you can do,
I'm going to be me,
And I'll let you be you.

You call flaws,
I call quirks,
They are not annoying,
They are perks!

I'm not going to change,
So deal with it,
You can't change me,
But don't throw a fit.

No one is perfect,
Everyone's perfectly imperfect,
Don't let people's advice
Contradict.

You will always be you,
He will always be he,
That dog will always be that dog,
And I will always be me!

    This is the best advice anyone can give somebody else. You have conveyed your thoughts rather nicely with your words and rhyme.
