Be an Original!

Be an original!
Why be a copycat?

You don't need anyone
to tell you what to do.
No one knows you
better than you do.

You are
what you think,
and what you think,
you are.

Why bother being
someone else's copy?
You are an original,
be proud!

If you really want to
be somebody,
be like no one else...
Be yourself!

One And Only You

Every single blade of grass,
And every flake of snow
Is just a wee bit differen
There's no two alike, you know.

From something small, like grains of sand,
To each gigantic star
All were made with THIS in mind:
To be just what they are!

How foolish then, to imitate-
How useless to pretend!
Since each of us comes from a MIND
Whose ideas never end.

There'll only be just ONE of ME
To show what I can do-
And you should likewise feel very proud,
There's only ONE of YOU.

That is where it all starts
With you, a wonderful
Unlimited human being.

~ James T. Moore
