Be yourself, or not…

Be yourself
The world tells me
Just be who you are
No disguises, no shame
Be yourself

Be yourself
It repeats monotonously
Not caring that it’s told me this thrice
But on it does drone through a loud megaphone
Be yourself  Be yourself  Be yourself

Be Christ‑like
The Bible tells me
Put away who you are
Take off all your old sins
Be Christ‑like

Be Christ‑like
The apostles preach fervently
Hoping that their readers will catch on
And instead of being themselves will
Be Christ‑like & like Christ be
