Be You – Buddy Wakefield

“So return to yourself

Even if you are already there

Because no matter where you go or how hard you try

or what you do

the only person that you’ll gonna

get to be

(and I know it)

is you.”

-Buddy Wakefield

I love this snippet from one of his poems. It is a reminder that the only person you get to be is you and you shouldn’t try to compare yourself to other people because they are walking a different path than you. Only you have experienced your journey.

Never be too hard on yourself.
