(Don't) Be Yourself

be yourself
be a kid
like I did
be your own person
but did I mention
these sidelines
guidelines
to abide by

here are hoops
to jump through
and you’ll be fine
you've got time
ages birth to ten
a lot can happen in between them
then again
maybe sooner

But now you're older
be bolder
make decisions
and start living
this is your life
take control
do anything
but make out time
for activities
learning
studying
volunteering
being

and you’ll be fine

you’ve got time
and by the way
decide.
