"Be true to yourself" You've heard people say - Even Shakespeare wrote this In his own unique way - "To thine own self be true" - But what does it really mean to be YOU? Do you know the answer to YOU, Even the person who walks in your shoe? Do you have doubts, woes and fears - Been trying to figure yourself out for years? If you can't, that could explain Why no one else knows your familiar terrain. Are you shy, moody or confused, Don't know what you're all about? Or wise, witty and charming And demand lots of clout? Introvert, extrovert, whatever the case, You're an important member of the whole human race. Are you happy, or even content With the quality of days that you've spent - Do you do the best you can do? Or is your foot in your mouth When you utter a word - Don't you care, or do you wish no one has heard? Do you really want to know YOU? Is there a Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Hyde, Someone's who's lurking to come out, inside? It's all very vexing and, oh, so perplexing - Perhaps it's best not to criticize, or analyze, YOU, Just overlook or overcome any idiosyncrasy, And let you be YOU, and let me be ME. And let you be YOU, and let me be ME.

I capitalized YOU and ME for emphasis. I wrote this poem for my husband. However, it could apply to everyone.
