Is it a crime to love yourself? 
No, in fact it's something that everyone should do
But we seldom practice this essential function
Why? 
Because society doesn't want self love
Society wants hate
Society wants a population of ugly ducklings
No one with the courage to grow into that beautiful Swan
 
But why I ask? 
Why accept the social rules and boundaries set forth by a establishment
It is and always will be your life to live
Why accept impossible? 
Why accept okay? 
Why accept destiny? 
Why not challenge? 
 
Challege is scary I know
Challenge is a risk
But challenge is freedom
Freedom is power
Be Free
Be Powerful
Be a Swan
Be Beautiful
