Yourself


Searching,
Searching for something just out of reach
a glimpse appears
an image of a younger,
much less thoughtful self
that seems so sheltered from the outside world
from the hard truthful reality,
this former self so innocent,
not caring what others think
not wondering if they are good enough.

Oh, how much has changed from
"those good old days"
To the harsh reality seeming to
slap you in the face

from the days that
you could be yourself,
your whole self
instead of a scared, masked,
and untrue self, that the outside world

be the life-loving, cheerful, and happy self.
instead of the self that is hidden
inside a body, shaped by stereotypes,
and others peoples views

BE YOURSELF
for that is the most
amazing
beautiful
and inspiring
a person you can be
