I am a summer rain ... serene.
I am a hurricane ... a powerful being.
Unstoppable as lava ... my creativity keeps flowing.
Constant as the galaxy ... my Dreams keep on going.
But when I look in my mirror what do I see? A wilted little wallflower reflected back at me. Yet the person I’ve been on the outside does not reflect the truth within. That timid little creature is not who I really am.
Shrunken by lies,
we’ve all worn the stain of society’s smudge.
Opinions, they have no real effect.
And insults? They’re really a foreign dialect.
The fog is clearing from my mirror and at last now I can see,
That what others say and think should not influence me.
Because we have the power to determine our own Destiny;
We have the drive to fulfill our call,
and we're not flowers growing against the wall.
So this is who I choose to be:
I am the tides ... untamable.
I am the skies ... uncontainable.
Strong as a child ... I wear my Heart on my sleeve.
I’m not afraid to be the real me.
But the true question is still to be asked, although I’ve made my choice at last.
In the war of individuality,
Who will you decide to be?

Ooooookay, I’ve been thinking lately and I have a question for you:
How often do you hide your true personality?
How many times do you cover your smile
or change your outfit cause you’re scared of others’ opinions?
How often do you try to “fit in”?
(Alright, so I have three questions for you, lol)
This is something that’s just been on my heart lately. I know what it's like, I’ve been there, when you feel like you have to change yourself into something you're not just so you can fit in. It's hard when you're left on the outside looking in on a world you long to be a part of... but then again it's even harder to try and hide the person you are so you can be on the inside, too.
I say enough!
We must be true to who we are,
and stop trying to be something we aren't,
and start honoring the things that make us unique.
We are all different for a reason, I mean, no one tells the snowflakes they all have to match! It’s time to
be true to ourselves,
and everything that makes us beautiful.
What about you?
I know I can't be the only one who's ever felt like they should change themselves, or been in a situation where you're suddenly left standing on the outside looking in. If you've ever been the "new kid", an outcast, or can relate to this dilemma in any way, I'd like to know: what do you think?
