Person I Should Be

Oh! That is how I should carry myself.
That is the person I should be!
But then, if I too am
So prim and propah,
Then who will add
The clumsy genuine touch?

Oh! That is how I should dress.
That is the person I should be!
But then, if I too
Dress only in shades of grey,
Then who will add
Colours – bright and light?

Oh! That is how I should talk.
That is the person I should be!
But then, if I too
Think thrice before I speak,
Then who will add
The blatantly honest touch?

Oh! That is how I should deal.
That is the person I should!
But then, if I too
Become overtly smart,
Then who will add
The innocent touch?

Oh! That is how I should live my life.
That is the person I should be!
But then, if I too
Live by the head,
Then who will add
The heartfelt touch?

Oh! That is how I should be.
Show me every person I should be!
But then, if I too
Become someone else,
Then who
Will be me?

        Also, I feel that there is no one more admirable than every single person who becomes a source of encouragement to someone else. You are one to me. 😀

      I love the way you don’t fail to contribute your own wonderful thoughts on the subject that I write on. This time too, I couldn’t agree more. We can’t live a lie.
