You, Period

March 12, 2012
Today you are you.
And yesterday and tomorrow too.
You are always you.
You can only be you.

You cannot be them.
You can never be them.
You can only be you.

You can be cool
You can be smart
You can be different
You can be plain
You can act the same
As all of them
But you are you.

You can be free
But you cannot be me.

You can be courageous
You can be outrageous
You can be outdated
But you can never be out-weighted.

And you can never be her
You can never be him
You can only be you!

If you are not you then who are you?
If you are not you then who are you?

This is a very cute poem. It is the type of poem we should read children and spread to them this important message!
