Be You-nique


Society: Be yourself, but not like that!

That’s all I seem to hear.

People encourage you to be unique,

but blast it on Facebook that you’re weird.

This world seems to love to bring you up,

but love even more to tear you down.

Why is it not ok to be yourself,

and stand apart from the crowd?

If I could change one thing about this world,

it would be that each soul have its place.

That we’d love each other, as God loves us,

not only those with a pretty face.

We live in a very superficial world,

and only the strong will survive.

But who is the voice for the voiceless ones?,

they too deserve to strive.

We’re surrounded with negativity, and hurt each other,

this truly has to end.

Try loving your neighbor and accept their truth,

you might even make a new friend.

Dig deep, look hard, within yourself,

and soon you’ll see the light.

That God made us all exactly as he planned,

stop judging and hating, alright?
