Wisdom of the World - Week 116

Be Yourself

The world would like to change you,
There are pressures all around,
You must decide just who you are,
Then firmly stand your ground.

You have an image of yourself,
An ideal sense of you;
And to this vision you must always
Struggle to be true.

You know what you are good at,
And you know where your talents lie;
But it you’re ruled by others,
Your uniqueness could pass by.

Remember, there’s much to learn;
But all new things aren’t good.
Wisdom lies in what you’ve learned
And what you have withstood.
