See yourself as others do.
Stand outside, apart from you.
Look inside and see your soul.
Understand what makes you whole.
Face the outrage of discontent.
Ignore the protests of the malcontent.
By being true to what you are,
Stand in the darkest corner, a lonely star?
Take this path and be alone.
Be an individual and not a clone.
Think for yourself and not be persuaded,
By stinging words at you berated?
You cannot change the wind but your sails can be turned,
In order to teach others from all that you’ve learned.
