Call It What You Like

You must be brave enough to be yourself
And never for a moment, look back
Wishing you were something different
Than who you are

We’re not the same
From day to day
Not even
Moment by moment

We’re not the same
You and me
Thee and Thou
Something then or now

You must be brave enough
To transcend all the bullshit
All the nonsense you think, read, and see
Transcend it all

I can’t help you
To be yourself
You can’t help me
To be who I am

But we can help each other
With reassurances
Undeniably why there are mirrors
Mire reflective moments in time, you and me
