"Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is you-er than you" ~ Dr. Seuss

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You can be outdated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 my fundamental belief: you are you and only you can be you. We are all unique, lets cherish and celebrate that.

♥ I've made mistakes in my life. i've let people take advantage of me, and i accepted way less than i deserve. But, i've learned from my bad choices, and even though there are some things i can never get back and people who will never be sorry. i'll know better next time and i wont settle for anything less than i deserve. ♥

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