Who You Are



Be exactly who you are

Always and by far

No matter whom

Is around you

And if this cannot be truly accepted

Then bid them adieu

We all have the option

To leave anyone

That is not right or conducive

For you

The option is always present

But how many of us

Just let it go on

Even though we know it’s wrong

Are you really content

Just going along

Hearing and dealing with

The same old song

Day after day

Night after night

When simply being yourself

Causes a fight

That should not be

Jumping through hoops

And over hurdles

For someone that doesn’t deserve it

Not enough action

But plenty of lip service

Speak up and admit the truth

And no matter what

Always be you


Where writing comes alive
