If you want to be Someone . . .

If you want to be the first person they come to when they're happy;

Then be the first person there for them when they're sad.

If you want to be the place they call home;

Be unmoved when they are far away.

If you want to be the richest;

Start by helping the poorest.

If you want to be the strongest;

Learn to admit your weaknesses.

If you want to be the wisest;

Recognise your foolishness.

If you want to be infinite;

Live only for the moment.

If you want pleasure;

You must risk pain.

If you want acceptance;

Embrace rejection.

If you want to be successful;

Appreciate failure.

And if you want to be someone . . .

 

Be yourself.
