Just be yourself

If you find yourself lacking sources of inspiration,

Sometimes you can look inside yourself for motivation.

 

 

We live in a society where people need a crutch

We lack confidence in ourselves, depend on others far too much.

 

People always complain that their life is lacking colour;

We can all be artists without reliance on eachother.

 

Sometimes people tell me they don't want to be themselves

I tell them "It's not possible to be somebody else."

 

You want to follow someone else, instead of raising the bar?

Well nobody out there's quite as good at being you, as you are.

 

Conforming to society will make you feel belonging

But when you belong to society, you grow a sense of longing

 

So break free and make yourself yours, today

Or else you'll fall to others, and give your spirit away.

 

I may sound like a hypocrit for making this my mission

I'm not telling you what to do, so make your own decision.
