Be You

by, Cassandra

Go ahead; hide behind
the wrong and right,
all those little lies and
opinions that aren't even
yours to begin with.

Let them tell you what
to think, to say, to do.
Let them mold you into
what you'll never be.
Should never be.

Keep your head down low,
and follow in the footprints
of all those who've come
before you, behind you,
and never be you.

Go ahead; hide behind
the wrong and right,
all those little lies and
opinions that aren't even
yours to begin with.

(I know who you could be.
it's a pity the world will never see.)
