a poem by Paul Butters, UK

To yourself be true,
No matter what you do.
Never be a sheep:
Popularity’s skin deep.

Nor be Fashion’s slave;
You have to be more brave.
There is no need to fight,
Your thoughts will give you might.

Develop Inner Strength
So you can go the length.
Be master of the Zen,
And even of the pen.

Today I guess you’d type,
And it’s not a load of hype.
That strength from deep within:
Your only chance to win.

Pleasing others is a crime:
You do not have the time.
Do not regret your life
After all that struggle and strife.

Just keep yourself on course,
And always feel The Force.
