Will the REAL You Please Stand Up?

Will the real you
Please stand up
Be bold enough
I can no longer live my life for you
I can’t stay cocooned
Doing what you “expect” me to do
Until I’m so much of your expectation I don’t even know who
The real me actually is"
That the fact is
The moment you do
Anything against the image that people have created for you
They might dismiss you, deject you, reject you and to them you
Become the same as everyone else
And when you think of having a life for yourself
This image of possibilities haunts you endlessly
Until you become the very thing you’re secretly
Afraid of being stuck in permanently
You become the thing that in others you so openly hate
You become this version of who you really are
But let me make
This journalistic endeavor
And ask you questions in search of answers
When you look in the mirror
How many faces are reflected?
When inspected have you ever
Any more than your feet
In your shoes?
Is there more than one who
Slips into your clothes when you dress for the day?
More than your nose, your two eyes, your two arms, your two hands, okay
I know you are thinking what exactly is she trying to say
So I’ll just say it
The only ONE that is living this life for YOU is YOU
It’s not up to someone else
This journey is about self
Let me help
Make this clear
While you live in fear of the rejection that may come when you walk away from living according to someone’s expectations
You disappoint your greatest Investor
Because the only one who should be cashing in on your life is the Creator
What do you surmise happens
When the ones whose expectations you’re wrapped up in
and you’re still living??
When you strip down to the naked truth and view this thing factually
Lives lived in pretension
Just LIES in motion
So I wrote these lines
To get you to see that its time
For your mind
To enforce an immigration policy
Purge itself of alien thoughts that have for so long taken up illegal residency
Renew itself so you’ll be true to yourself
And finally have the guts
To rise to your feet this time when I call out
Will the real you please stand up?!!!!!
