Be Yourself

‘Just be yourself’ is terrible advice.
This world runs on bullshit,
no one likes the truth.
Being yourself puts you at odds,
you see the jokes before you,
their lies shape your truth.
Being yourself leads to odd questions,
and judgement by other’s standards.
They tell you to ‘be yourself’
while they’re being someone else.

  1. Well said, but at the end of the day you can spot a fake for the most part. So you can be yourself with a bit of twisting in being yourself. So my advice would be “Be yourself cautiously”.

  2. Very true. being yourself is not always the best advice. That is unless you are funny and clever like you seem to be. Keep up the good work. -Dave
