We start out life searching for who we will be…..
What we will learn
What we will stand for
What we will become, defend, and believe.
We try different and new things to help us to grow…..
Educate our minds
Work and play for experiences
And create relationships with the people we know.
We build homes, designing our own special place…..
To protect our children
Collect our own memories
To rest and recover from life’s race.
We succeed and we fail, right from the start…..
Making tons of mistakes
Poor decisions and choices
Surely, trusting too much with our hearts.
And we worry too much, about all the wrong things…..
The cut and color of our hair
Clothes, shoes, brands and make up
Despite all the hassle that brings.
We begin to view life as a competition, that is no fun…..
More money for more things
Who can get the most friends
We seek to be liked by everyone.
But my advice for all would be….. Just be who you are…..
Love what you already have
Treasure your family and friends
And this will bring you more happiness by far.
For whatever you own, how you look, the true self lies within…..
Dark skinned, light or freckled
Smooth, weathered, scarred or tattooed
Simply accept and love the skin you’re in.
