Always Be You

By Bud Lemire

Remember to always be you
Don't change, you need to be true
Your personality, is a special quality
Being you, is something to be

Follow the path, that always feels right
Don't take a wrong turn, where you'll have to fight
Ease through life, as only you can
Be the best you, whether woman or man

Believe what you do, experience it your own way
Live each time, as though it's your last day
Never let go, of the best quality you own
It makes the “You,” that you've always known

Don't let religion or politics, corrupt you in any way
Keep following your own path, in every day
If you change at all, gradual it should be
Ease into it, for that is the key

Sometimes it takes a lifetime to change
From where you started, the ending is strange
Strange that you are, totally different from the start
Yet maybe the change, taught you about your heart

Author Note:

Always be you! Follow your path, and change as
you grow. Grow from the changes. Learn from the
changes. Learn from life. Never let anyone tell you
that you should do something by forcing you. Search
within and if it feels right, do it. If it feels wrong, don't
do it. Your intuition, spirit, mind, and heart should know
when something isn't right. Use it, and always be you.
