Probably something from Einstein.


What is it like to truly be free?

Is it like being a bee?

Flying around, working hard,

Doing your job and playing your part?

Or is it like being a tree?

Living your life, hoping for the best,

Proud to be another bird family’s nest?

Or is it like being me?

Taking on the inevitable, in my own way,

Learning to be incredible and brighter than day?

Yes, I believe that’s how to truly be free,

Unlike someone who fakes all good deeds.

Be yourself, and just do what you do,

Because that way you can be the true you.

The author's comments:

This was thought of when I decided to write a poem about morality.

I've written numerous poems in this style, and I wanted to summarize some lessons that I've learned in a single one.

Thank you very much.

When even the scars formed by your mistakes
are you own constellations?"
