Be You


“About all

you can do

in life is

be who you are.

Some people

will love you

for you.

Most will love you

for what you can

do for them,

and some won’t like you at all.”


Rita Brown


Somewhere on this planet,

among the billions of people living here,

there are some that will fit every category of love.

A billion or two don’t know you and don’t care.

A few million are needy, don’t know how to love

and just want to use and abuse anyone they can.

A couple of hundred people just don’t like you,

real or preconceived, you are the wrong color,

the wrong religion and whatever is wrong with them.

Today, hang with the few that love you

because you are you.

Love is not all-inclusive. (but should be.)

Love is helping someone love themselves.
