Be Yourself

Be yourself, don’t ride the wave

Of fashion, be it word or deed

Your sentiments are valid too

Go forth, and weaker minds concede

Posterity recalls the thinker

Passionate, with sturdy aim

Whose utterances are cast in concrete

Whose principles define his name

Be strong, and carve your niche with passion

Don’t follow,

Lead with fortitude

Although your deeds are oft derided

And well-meant words are misconstrued

Say what you think, don’t be diverted

Ignore prevailing, shallow thought

Stoke the furnace, forge your path

Of iron, from which great men are wrought.
