BE YOU

Location

Be yourself  when some ones looking

be yourself even when no ones looking

Don't stop being yourself from rejections you might get in your heart

no matter what believe in your personality 

Don't put on your costume

but wear your true colors

people will try to take you down from the clear sky

to the darkness or pain  

but you stand up for you 

no matter what 

as long as you like yourself for who you are it doesn't matter what others say

Even the ghost in the door way who is

welcoming you to a world of strangers 

unless you be yourself 

so close the door and be you

I love this because I can totally relate because living in this society it's hard to be yourself so this poem is totally relatable. Good job!
