Be You

by ..eliSa*   Dec 10, 2005


You say you can’t do it,
Yet you've never tried.
Your level of accomplishment
Isnt measured by the amount you’ve cried.

Stop feeling sorry for yourself.
You must try to heal your sores.
Don’t lose faith in yourself,
Because only you can achieve opened doors.

Only you can make things happen,
That’s why you can’t give up!
Don’t panic if you make a single mistake,
You learn from them without cover up.

It’s not about popularity,
Or being the most attractive one,
Stop trying so hard,
Because what you are trying to be is far too over done.

You are way better then that
You are an individual, unique and bold.
You are beautiful the way you are,
Regardless of anything else you've been told.

Don't think twice,
About the cruel things they say.
Just remember they're like everyone else,
And couragously walk away.

I know life is a constant struggle,
But you must be strong.
Do not give up on yourself,
When the littlest of things go wrong.

Keep striving and never give up,
Regardless of what others think of you.
There are no limits to anything in life,
As long as you are yourself in all that you do.
