Who Will I Be?


How many times have you heard that saying "Just be yourself". When you are worried about a job interview you are told "just be yourself". You are anxious about that blind date you are told "just be yourself". So I asked myself the question. What self will I be?

Just Be Yourself

Just be yourself is what they say

what do I have to lose?

But I have so many different selves

so, which one shall I choose?

Maybe my paranoia self

that everybody talks about.

Or what about my anxious self

nervous and full of doubt.

Then I have my addictive self

in a glass the answer lies

The next is my depressive self

who just curls up and cries.

I wonder where the answer lies

in which one I should be.

I think I’ve found the answer

I’m the keeper of the key.

I can be just who I want to be

on any given day.

The choice is mine, only I decide

who is coming out to play.

And that is where the answer lies

In the choices that I make.

I can be the best I can

the decisions mine to take.

So, when they say just be yourself

I know just what to do.

By being honest and authentic

my real self will shine through.
