Real Rebels

James Dean was the rebel without a cause
Gandhi used peaceful resistance without pause

Those who dare to be themselves
in this era of mass programming
are the rebels I sincerely applaud!

Fame may not follow but authenticity
is worth far more with personal integrity,
embrace all within, know yourself well.

Rebelling against a broken system
is a worthy cause. So be yourself
don’t conform, turn off your screen!

  1. YES! Excellent! 🙂
    “…authenticity is worth far more with personal integrity…know yourself well…”
    I must memorize that so I can recall it when I need it.
    I have always tried to be 100% me. I think it’s so sad when, for whatever reasons, people can’t or won’t be themselves.
    HUGS!!! 🙂
    PS…I’ve always had a little rebel in me. And some devil’s advocate. 🙂

  2. Rebelling against our system where we have to be better than everyone else all the time. It just doesn’t appeal to me anymore. Be slightly “not as good” and genuine instead, and I would be impressed.
