Be yourself; everyone else is already taken
-Oscar Wilde

Stop trying so hard
What is outer beauty?
It is something for us
To Judge.
To Change.
To Mock.
Set free
Your inside.
Throw off your chains
Of makeup
Of brands
Of skills
Let go
Of your feelings.
Put aside
What others think.
Let the bird inside you fly.
Let the lion inside you roar.
Let the dolphin inside you dive.
Let the you inside you…
Be you.
