Never change who you are

a poem by daniel chidie, Nigeria - poetry writer, author, poet

I tried to be like him
Playing the macho man
though tough i thought i was
Yet when clashed
I got swirled to my grim

I tried to be like him
Knowing all i new n'could
Though i thought his thoughts were same
Yet he knew more than i knew

I tried to be like him
Wooing girls against my will
Though in time i got the skill
Yet got less than he did

I tried to be like him
Shooting far more game too fast
Knowing the wrongs yet sought
Stiill shot less than i wished

I tried to be like him
Handling all the pompous gadgets
Wielding all my wealth at a time
Yet got broke than he did

I tried to be like him
Fixing all my time for fun
Watching all his steps and turn's
Yet lagged behind than he did

I tried to be like him
Sitting all time at night
Seeking the fun i thought he sought
Yet all slow with my dreams

But he never tried to be like me
Putting all my thoughts in rhymes
Then i know am one of a kind
OH!! I'll joyfullybe who i am
