Will you be a hard worker? Hot headed berserker?
Ya gonna be a go-getter? Work in any weather?
Or will ya be lazy? Should people call ya crazy?
Wanna be a trend setter? Wearin brand names on your sweater?
Maybe a deep thinker? How bout a social drinker?
Are you hilarious? Or super serious?
I'm just curious..

Will you be a mighty mind ...That cannot be defined?
Exude a solid attitude ... striving to improve?
Will you try to do your best, believing you are blessed?
Live out your dreams ... of being your best being?

Continuously evolving, with faith you will be solving
any problems arriving.
To ensure their discontinuance.

Will you be influenced... by your parents?
Repeating like parrots, or a horse chasing carrots.
Led by the rider, without following your own desires
Or will you be inspired, to carve your own way?
Get closer every day...
Be your own definition of how to be existent,
All while listenin' to your loved one's opinions,
Maintaining a humane position,
Respecting them for correcting what you're missin'
Or do former traditions, force you into submission?

Are you beginnin'... to figure it out?
or do you live with doubt?
Do you know for sure, what is your character?

Will you listen to friends, then blame your problems on them?
Or do you have what it takes, to own up to your own mistakes?
Take time to evaluate.... No need to live with hate.
Guide your perception... to a considerate direction
The world is a reflection, of how you are effectin'... others with your connections
You can move to improve... if you see you need to... You don't need an excuse.
From someone treating you obtuse..
People don't deserve heartless abuse, so please know what you choose to do.

When you make a choice, please consider your voice.
No one knows everythin', matter of perception,
What is yours? That is the question.
Do you pay attention?
Do you even consider? Or do you just deliver,
Whatever feelin's are in your quiver...
With a heart so cold it makes me shiver...
Blindly shootin' arrows, while your mind is in the narrows.

Will you be sensitive? And always try to give?
Or will you be a tough guy? Known to never cry.
Gonna take care of yourself? Maintain your health?
Will ya be a shoulder to lean? Even if it seems...
Like you're not interested, and you'd rather sleep instead...
Will you be wise motivator? Or a thorough demonstrator?
A student or a prudent? You can tell me later.

I have no intent to control..
I believe you will reach your goals, trust in your soul.
all I want to know..

What kind of person do YOU want to be?

Can you conceive?
I won't make any demands, I just want to understand.
How you want be remembered...
Cause when your days are outnumbered..
Your words, heart and deeds will all define you.
I know that you can align too...
and always be true... to whatever you really wanna do.

Take time to contemplate, and consider your fate.
It is never too late... you CAN communicate, with care and not hate.
Whatever your choices, just be proud of what your voice says.
Since your "actions speak louder", use them to make yourself even prouder.
For yourself.. you hold all the power. Don't let yourself turn sour.
You are a beautiful flower.
You can choose the colour.

Will you be a strong mind? That cant be defined.
Keep a strong mindset, that will not regret,
Always try to do your best, believing you are blessed.
Will you live your dreams of being your perfect being?
Continuously evolving, with confidence you'll be solvin
Any of your problems, without a doubt, conquer all them

What kind of person do YOU want to be?
Is the first thing to try to conceive.
How will you be remembered?
Cause when your days are outnumbered..
Your words, heart and deeds all define you.
I know that you can align too.

You're very talented indeed.
 
Someone falls to pieces
Sleeping all alone
Someone kills the pain
Spinning in the silence
She finally drift away
Someone gets excited
In a chapel yard
Catches a bouquet
Another lays a dozen
White roses on a grave
And be yourself is all that you can do
To be yourself is all that you can do
Someone finds salvation in everyone
Another only pain
Someone tries to hide themself
Down inside himself he prays
Someone swears their true love
Until the end of time
Another runs away
separate or united?
Healthy or insane?
And be yourself is all that you can do (all that you can do)
To be yourself is all that you can do (all that you can do)
To be yourself is all that you can do (all that you can do)
Be yourself is all that you can do
Even when you've paid enough
Been pulled apart
Or been held up
Every single memory of
The good or bad, faces of love
Don't lose any sleep tonight
I'm sure everything will end up alright
You may win or lose
But to be yourself is all that you can do
To be yourself is all that you can do
To be yourself is all that you can do (all that you can do)
To be yourself is all that you can do (all that you can do)
To be yourself is all that you can
Be yourself is all that you can
Be yourself is all that you can do
 
What an excellent message that feels reminiscent of the desiderata.
I had to look up what that even was lol..

I appreciate the comparison to something considered to be one of the greatest ever..
I aim to be my best but never really expect that level of success.. just continuously remain devoted to improving where I see I can.

for anyone else in the same boat ... Desiderata

Keep you in the dark
You know they all pretend
Keep you in the dark
And so it all began

Send in your skeletons
Sing as their bones go marching in again
They need you buried deep
The secrets that you keep are ever ready
Are you ready?

I'm finished making sense
Done pleading ignorance
That old defense

Spinning infinity, boy
The wheel is spinning me
It's never-ending, never-ending
Same old story

What if I say I'm not like the others?
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
You're the pretender
What if I say I will never surrender?
What if I say I'm not like the others?
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
You're the pretender
What if I say that I never surrender?

In time, or so I'm told,
I'm just another soul for sale, oh well

The page is out of print
We are not permanent
We're temporary, temporary
Same old story

What if I say I'm not like the others?
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
You're the pretender
What if I say I will never surrender?
What if I say I'm not like the others?
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
You're the pretender
What if I say I will never surrender?

I'm the voice inside your head you refuse to hear
I'm the face that you have to face mirrorin' your stare
I'm what's left; I'm what's right; I'm the enemy
I'm the hand that'll take you down and bring you to your knees
So, who are you?
Yeah, who are you?
Yeah, who are you?
Yeah, who are you?

Keep you in the dark
You know they all pretend
What if I say I'm not like the others?
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
You're the pretender
What if I say I will never surrender?
What if I say I'm not like the others?
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
You're the pretender
What if I say that I'll never surrender?
What if I say I'm not like the others?

(Keep you in the dark)
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
(You know they all)
You're the pretender
(Pretend)
What if I say I will never surrender?
What if I say I'm not like the others?
(Keep you in the dark)
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
(You know they all)
You're the pretender
(Pretend)
What if I say I will never surrender?
So, who are you?
Yeah, who are you?
Yeah, who are you?
 

Man, whatever
Dre, just let it run
Ayo, turn the beat up a little bit
Ayo, this song is for anyone...
Fuck it, just shut up and listen, ayo
I sit back with this pack of Zig-Zags and this bag
Of this weed, it gives me the shit needed to be
The most meanest MC on this on this Earth
And since birth I've been cursed with this curse to just curse
And just blurt this berserk and bizarre shit that works
And it sells and it helps in itself to relieve all this tension
Dispensing these sentences, getting this stress
That's been eating me recently off of this chest
And I rest again peacefully
But at least have the decency in you
To leave me alone, when you freaks see me out
In the streets when I'm eating or feeding my daughter
To not come and speak to me
I don't know you, and no, I don't owe you a mothafuckin' thing
I'm not Mr. N'Sync, I'm not what your friends think
I'm not Mr. Friendly, I can be a prick if you tempt me
My tank is on empty, no patience is in me
And if you offend me, I'm lifting you ten feet in the air
I don't care who was there and who saw me just jaw you
Go call you a lawyer, file you a lawsuit
I'll smile in the courtroom and buy you a wardrobe
I'm tired of all you, I don't mean to be mean
But that's all I can be, it's just me
And I am whatever you say I am
If I wasn't, then why would I say I am?
In the paper, the news, every day I am
Radio won't even play my jam
'Cause I am whatever you say I am
If I wasn't, then why would I say I am?
In the paper, the news, every day I am, huh
I don't know, it's just the way I am
Sometimes I just feel like my father
I hate to be bothered with all of this nonsense, it's constant
And, oh, it's his lyrical content, the song Guilty Conscience
Has gotten such rotten responses
And all of this controversy circles me
And it seems like the media immediately points a finger at me
So I point one back at 'em, but not the index or pinkie
Or the ring or the thumb, it's the one you put up
When you don't give a fuck, when you won't just put up
With the bullshit they pull, 'cause they full of shit too
When a dude's getting bullied and shoots up his school
And they blame it on Marilyn and the heroin
Where were the parents at? And look where it's at!
Middle America, now it's a tragedy
Now it's so sad to see, an upper-class city
Havin' this happenin'
Then attack Eminem 'cause I rap this way
But I'm glad, 'cause they feed me the fuel that I need
For the fire to burn and it's burning, and I have returned
And I am whatever you say I am
If I wasn't, then why would I say I am?
In the paper, the news, every day I am
Radio won't even play my jam
'Cause I am whatever you say I am
If I wasn't, then why would I say I am?
In the paper, the news, every day I am
I don't know, it's just the way I am
I'm so sick and tired of being admired
That I wish that I would just die or get fired
And dropped from my label, let's stop with the fables
I'm not gonna be able to top on "My Name Is"
And pigeon-holed into some poppy sensation
To cop me rotation at rock-n-roll stations
And I just do not got the patience
To deal with these cocky Caucasians
Who think I'm some wigger who just tries to be black
'Cause I talk with an accent, and grab on my balls
So they always keep asking the same fucking questions
What school did I go to, what hood I grew up in
The why, the who, what, when, the where and the how
'Til I'm grabbing my hair and I'm tearin' it out
'Cause they driving me crazy, I can't take it
I'm racin', I'm pacin', I stand and I sit
And I'm thankful for every fan that I get
But I can't take a shit in the bathroom
Without someone standing by it
No, I won't sign you an autograph
You can call me an asshole, I'm glad, 'cause...
I am whatever you say I am
If I wasn't, then why would I say I am?
In the paper, the news, every day I am
Radio won't even play my jam
'Cause I am whatever you say I am
If I wasn't, then why would I say I am?
In the paper, the news, every day I am
I don't know, it's just the way I am
 

Thought of this little known song that puts the same smile on my I had when I saw your awesome poem.

Props to a mind bent on bravery tempered with brevity.... may you continue to burn bright for those not able to shine and pray in time your spark will find by themselves or the divine a place to smoke smolder and burst into life. We have time but life doesn't let us rewind so everyone, please be kind.

I'm grateful for people like you that remind me we all play a part in channeling the light. That sometimes we have to look for sunshine in shadows. Realizing no matter how dark things might seem, even at our lowest....no shadow can exist without light to cast it. Thank you, truly.
