You.

Another poem by Glen originally published in Elvis Has Left the Building (2002).

You.

Who are you?

Are you who you think you are,

or are you

who other people think you are?

 

You can only truly be who you are

if you let yourself be yourself.

When you try to be as others see you,

you are conforming

to another way of being,

or to what other want you to be.

 

Be true to yourself

and don’t let others control you.

 

You are an individual.

You are unique,

you are special.

And only when you realise this

will you achieve your true potential.
