Be You

We were all born-to-die legends but for this to happen, we must do legendary things while we live. — Henery X

Be You

Just like everything else, creative writing is all about steps and stages,

Computer keyboards, pencils, pens, and blank pages

But I’m getting a bit ahead of myself

Let me speak about what will be your real wealth

Which is your style

You know the thing that will determine if you’ll be here just for the moment or for more than just a little while

Creativity Breeds Longevity

I’ve said this so many times

But I don’t think that this has registered in to many minds

So many carbon copies

And to top it off all the copies

Sound so sloppy… copy?

Come on, you’re only doing yourself a disservice

I know attempting to do something new can make you feel real nervous

But imagine once you get past that feeling

It’ll be like crashing through your first glass ceiling

Listen to learn and speak to enlighten

And before you know it every battle involving you will be known as a clash with the Titan

There’s nothing wrong with being who you are

Because in all actuality every human being is a star

And our shine

Will be determined by the degree we decide to utilize our mind

So we can lead by example or be left light years behind

Be You


Thank you for taking the time to acknowledge my offering. May all you deserve and desire flow abundantly into your life, as a river does into a sea.


Remember. I’m not here to convince you to believe. I’m here to offer you something else to consider.


May we never lose our desire to outdo what we’ve already done.


Continue to be a lighthouse for all those who feel lost in the sea of life.


Peace, Love, and the utmost Respect.
