Poem: Be not afraid to be you

Fear not the person within

It awaits you, patiently

Cower not to the possibility of greatness

It is in you

It IS you.

Others care not that you want not to be you, that you are not you

They can see your fear

They can see your greatness

They can see you squandering you.



You can be only you

Only you can be you

Be not wishful not to be you

Beautiful you!

For, once you deny your true nature,


Once you turn your back on truly you,


You deserve not the greatness of you!

    This is a beautiful poem, it truly shows the essence of what it means to be “YOU” and that no matter what, we should be content with who we are and not change for anyone. I think even the great Chinese philosopher and teacher Confucius would be proud of this poem.


  4. […] Writing this post has sparked the poet inside me. You have to agree with me that the title is rather poetic right? I couldn’t resist. Mind you, I have only ever written one other poem which was 12 years ago, in high school. Bearing this in mind, criticize with kindness. The poem is titled “Be not afraid to be you”. […]
