Be Yourself

Be Yourself

A Poem by DuffyDreamer
"

We're all monsters here

"

Sink.


Don’t pay no mind to them. 


You’ve traveled this far babe, why get better now?


You know the pit of emptiness you feel. You don’t need to explain yourself.


They always say to be yourself but they never think about the true nature of humans.


Be yourself. 


So drink until I’m drowning in it, until I can’t hold myself up?


So slice and dice until my skin is covered in red and sizzling like fire?


So absorb that so called medicine until I feel nothing at all, until I’m so close to death?


So scream at everything and nothing and let my tears be the lullaby that sing me to sleep? 


Be yourself.


Don’t change for anyone and just be…just be yourself. 


You monster.

I've never thought about it that way, but you're right! maybe the saying should be 'be the person you aspire to be'...only as long as you aspire to be a better, more compassionate human being. And here is another thought, one that I've learned personally in my own life: emptiness is born from selfishness. Now, for me, choosing to not be selfish is not easy...but when I resolve to care more about others, I always feel more sated
