Wear Yourself With Your Shoulders High.

Poeticnurse is a Student Nurse studying for her BSc at the university of Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria.

Afterwards,
everyone has a thing or two
to say about someone,
good or bad,
right or wrong,
it's just a way of life
upon the earth we walk,
get used to it and be you,
you don't have to be good
to have a good report,
you don't have to be bad either
to have a bad report,
You don't have to wear a mask
over your scars to cover you shame,
You just have to be You
Embrace it,
Love it,
and watch good or bad
preached like a gospel upon your face,
It's a way life shows us
we're still in her and her in us.
When you eat of her fruit,
Sweet or soar
Don't be pained,
Don't be angered,
you only owe one thing to yourself,
To be a better version of You!

Oh, my This is so good and inspiring Even the title is interesting Thanks for the reminder I agree with you Each of us tend to have something to say about each other But, instead of being bothered by it, we shall just be ourselves,instead of pretend, right? Btw, I like the last lines, "You only owe one thing to yourself, to be a better version of you!" That's right! ~

Well said; people will always have something to say, no matter what. Best thing is to be you always and wear your head high.
