Be Who You Are

Be strong, open, and willing to explore
beyond your comfort zone.
Wear your own skin proudly.
Believe in yourself and your abilities.
Know that you are unique and special.
Be who you are within and smile.

Now, aren't you just a most wonderful and wise young man, from whom we can learn the highest truths of life!

You are quite simply amazing, dear Michael! Love the picture too.

Love,
Margherita

Margherita, why thank you dear friend. For some reason,
my muse begged me to write this on these pages of blue.

I am glad that I wrote it and decided to post it. I'm also looking forward to posting some ending of autumn poems and heading into the cool, icy wynter!

to you

In the bathroom, at my work... one of the stalls has Don't worry You're beautiful written on it. I believe this poem would be a perfect addition to that statement. In a few words, it describes how girls and women should be leading their lives.

Hi Michael, that is a very wise bit of advice my friend, you are quite the

philosopher with this poem, especcially for one so young, much enjoyed.

Lindsay, thanks! ~ I love to write if it helps people through problems or knocks some sense into individuals cause in the end, we're all unique and weird in our OWN way. If you feel weird cause of who you are, embrace that you're unique, that's what defines you from others.

Thanks for reading!
