There are two kinds of people in this world;
Those who look to be inspired by people that stand out,
Those who look to inspire people by standing out.
For in any approach we try to take it,
or any method we try to make it,
We do not actually live our own lives without being ourselves.
Where we live in a society that constantly increases its expectations
A society that holds science in high esteem,
yet wonder why the finance and art sector is sparsely populated,
A society that lays excessive emphasis on being a virgin,
Yet fly whispers when marriages fail due to inexperience,
A society that seeks to endorse peace,
Yet spends millions in acquiring weapons and ammo,
A society that constantly preaches the usefulness of degrees,
Yet would gladly pay a million to see Wizkid perform.
Is this the society that you want to sacrifice your abilities to satisfy?
The irony of it makes me wonder,
Why do we even attempt to blend in?
Do we take the hard and dedicated way to ensure stability?
Or do we take the shortcut, with all its promises?
When I was a kid, I wanted to be like Ben Carson,
As a kid now, he will tell you he wants to be like Michael jackson.
A wise man once told me: To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest achievement.
Whether you want to fly,
Or whether you want to run as fast as the wind.
Whether you can’t solve a simple differential calculus question,
Or whether you cant spell ‘believe’
Do not choose you weaknesses at the expense of your strengths just because society demands it from you.
Always be yourself, run towards the sun away from your kryptonite,
And you will always be happy.
