Be Yourself – A Poem

Don’t expect to be

Understood by others

Because everyone looks at you

With tinted glasses

Because everyone judges you

Based on their experiences

On what they have gone through


Find yourself, the real you 

Find your own direction 

Find what you stand for 

Find your core beliefs

Forgive your every mistake

Remember what makes you special

Let go of what broke you

Embrace your flaws

Let yourself feel deeply

Promise yourself to continue evolving 

and believe that your time will come

Hope you liked the poem.

Hey, Our brains are extremely sensitive to rhyme and rhythm in poetry. They can provide comfort and lift one’s spirits during times of stress, trauma, or grief. Its potent combination of words, metaphor, and metre allows us to express ourselves more effectively and make sense of the world and our place in it. With this in mind, I present a collection of coming-of-age poems that may inspire you to overcome life’s challenges and uncertainties. If you like my poems, do leave a review on Amazon. Here’s a link to the book –

      Yes, we seem to always judge on the basis of incomplete information/data/experience. Perhaps that highlights humility and unknowing?

      Yes it’s about accepting what is and ploughing through. The only way through it is through it.

      Being yourself is important because it allows you to be genuine in your interactions with others and maintain healthy relationships. When you are genuine, people are more likely to trust and respect you, which are essential components of any healthy relationship. Additionally, being yourself allows you to be happy and content with who you are, which is something everyone deserves.
