be careful…

So you say you want to be like me because you like what you see, that you want my smile, you want my style but you don’t really know how I got here, my journey of many a mile. There are times when I was so lost, while out on the seas that ship of mine; drifting and tossed. There have been moments when I knew that I was better off dead; hypnotized by the critic in my head. It’s been a journey of twists and turns to choose to follow the lessons learned. The person you see is the person I was meant to be and that is the charge I ask you to think through; that rather than to be like me, please consider learn to be YOU!
