Right Now: Blend In or Stand Out

who i am

i do not know


who will i be

i cannot discern


what will i choose today


will i be myself

or a shadow of everyone else


it’s easier to blend in

but what if i want to stand out


but standing out is much more work

and blending in takes no effort 


the tallest blade of grass

is always first to be cut


so to protect yourself

it’s better to be short


every day is a battle 

between a shadow and a star


will i shine bright today

or will i disappear in the dark 


to blend in or stand out

something to think about
