You don't need a patent

You don’t need a patent
To stop yourself
From being sold
On a shelf.

There is someone,
Weird as it seems,
Who wants to buy you
Along with your dreams.

You need to stand firm,
But please understand,
That does not mean
You need feet to stand.

All you need is a heart,
All you need is a mind,
All you need to be
Is one of a kind.

Don’t be conceited,
Don’t be a door mat,
Be who you are,
For you’re great like that.

I hope that whoever reads this will have a new liking for themself. At this point in a adolescense's life, there are many pressures that you will come across. And I am opptimistic that, after you read this, you won't let ANYONE buy or sell you. You are priceless. Thank you.

See, we really DON'T have anything to fear but fear itself!

and to never let themselves go or be transformed into someone new, not matter what.
