NaPoWRiMo Day 27: To Be You

Today's challenge was to take a famous saying (I chose "To thine own self be true, etc..."), google the first three words, and write a poem with words mined from the first couple pages of results.  Mine is:

To Be You

Get, through thine own group,
brevity of information,
truly understanding both day
and night's commands.
Be yourself in a primitive society.
Promotion deceives.
Genuine confidence,
vitality, trust, make your path straight.
Start out with brief, underlying tenets,
but be true to the understanding of a child.
Greatness weighs breathless upon honor,
being merely yourself,
wonderfully, thankfully,
just plain, you.

                       --Shirley Smith Franklin
