For Who Can We Be

Oh Deary me!

Welcome dear ones!

"For who can we be, but ourselves."
Molly Vonk

"The great man is he who in the midst of the crowd
keeps with perfect sweetness
the independence of solitude."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Said the deer to the girl,

"I live by the nature of me."

Always bring you
to everything you do.
Never let anyone change you
from being you.

Live out of your own skin
like something akin
to gratitude pursue.

It's the perfect thing to do.
Be your main character
just live out loud.

"Today you are you!
That is truer than true.
There is no one alive
who is you-er than you."
Dr. Seuss

Fall in love with your life.

You are your own typical self and no one can emulate your strengths. Very true

That Dr. Suess quote is wonderful! It's been awhile since I thought of it. Dr. Suess is my hero because I love rhyme so much.

I loved your take, Karen! Such good advice put in an amazing poem. Good to see you're writing again. Nice to be at Mag this week I hope you come to visit my poem.

Hugs! Bekkie
