Be Yourself

“Be yourself,
 but with a little less this
 and a little more that,
 and try not to do
 what you’re doing.”

 “Be yourself,”
 it’s amazing how often it’s heard,
 how quickly it’s discarded,
 the minute originality
 breaks the mold.

 Be yourself.
 Authenticity is priceless.
 It drives imagination and innovation
 more than unoriginal copies
 can comprehend.

About Christina Anne Hawthorne

Alive and well in the Rocky Mountains. I'm a fantasy writer who also dabbles in poetry, short stories, and map making. My Ontyre tales are an alternative fantasy experience, the stories rich in mystery, adventure, and romance. Alternative fantasy? Not quite steampunk. Not quite gothic. In truth, the real magic is in those who discover what's within.
