Be true, be you. A poem about peer pressure

We have but one,
this life we are given.
How we choose to live it

Let others have a say,
no way!!!
We are who we are

Not living to conform to,
others' ideas of us.
If we let it be

they will take our
joy away.
Follow your path

Stay true to you,
no one else
to blame for your

life but you.
No power will be given
to those who wish me ill

I stand by me
it's my will
not yours not ever

Happy to be
who I am
that's just me.

  2. Simply a message to folks to be who they are, they will never be happy if they follow others' expectations of their lives. To follow your own heart is the only way to be really happy. No one else can be made responible for our happiness, that lies with each one of us to ensure our own lives are happy.
