I am what I am,
As I always have been,
From the time when first I was born;

And for me to try,
To be anything else,
For certain would leave me forlorn.

True happiness comes,
From accepting yourself,
Not trying to be like your brothers;

For we each possess,
Both virtues and faults,
Though some may differ from others.

Each of these things,
Form the basic make-up,
Of each individual person;

And as long as God,
Is happy with that,
We've no call for jeers or for curses;

So I will be happy,
Just as I am,
For that is all I can be;

Not some carbon copy,
Of somebody else,
I'm too busy just being me.

(To Thine Own Self Be True)

    I couldn't have a read it better anywhere else. I'm sure I happened upon it for a reminder... Thanks for sharing Judy.

    That is very true and you should be praised for being content with what you have. Well writ. God bless, Victor
