Just Be Yourself?

By
How can you be expected to be yourself when you don't know who that is?
You are too worried about what others think,
So you start to lose your identity.

Your identity is more than something you keep in your wallet,
It is something you keep in your soul.
Without this your mind and soul would die.

Sure you may "Fit In" but if everyone was the same the world would be lonely.
For it is not the things that are the same that create love,
It is the differences.

Without love the place we call "home" would not exist,
For "home" is where the love is felt the strongest.

The only way to keep your soul alive
Is to just be yourself.

You only get one life,
Don't mess it up trying to be something your not.
Live it to its fullest potential,
JUST BE YOURSELF
