"If you nurture your mind, body, and spirit, your time will expand.  You will gain a new perspective that will allow you to accomplish much more." --Brian Koslow

I used to love the SiZe of my eyes,
                              SO tiny AND PERFECT....
   ....Until I was told that BIG eyes are beautiful
I used to love the color of my hair,

       golden, brown, and red...a mysterious myriad of colors....
....Until I was told that blonde equals dumb, brown is boring, and red is mean-spirited
                   
I used to love my body.
           I used to
love my strong convictions....
....Until I was told I was too rigid, too structured, too conservative
   
I used to love my mind.
        I used to love my humanitarian concerns....
            ....Until I was told I was too soft, too kind-hearted, too liberal
                  
I used to love my spirit.
I used to love my inside as well as my outside....
        ....Until
THEY told me what I was, who I am, and what I needed to be.
    They. 
They have defined me.  They have put me in a [box], trapped me in walls.
   
They.  They are the ones who have sculpted me based on THEIR images.
      Images they want to see, images they prefer.
                             They.  Who are
they?
                I want to be
me.  Free to be me.
I don't want a
text-book definition to define me.
           I want to be....
                            .
...DIFFERENT!
I want to decide who I am,
                what I stand for, what I believe in,
         and what I want to do with
MY life.
  My life.      I want to be me.     It's that simple.
                         Be yourself.       
Be you.
          Your
body, your mind, & your spirit.
                                       
Simply you.
