Better To Be

And that my friend is the secret to happiness


Don’t wish that you were just like me
Because you know it’s true:
You’ll never be a better me
Nor I a better you.

Though you can try your very best,
You’ll lose yourself this way,
So look inside instead of out
And find the words to say,

I can always be a better me
And you a better you,
And that’s the way it’s meant to be –
Ourselves we grow into.  Copyright 2013 © Sonya Annita Song

About cho wan yau

Teacher by day poet/writer by night. Words have been my first love and will be my last. As a child I locked myself into the toilet devouring books which transported me to distant lands. Poetry shared penned from 2009-2010 in a titanic struggle to stay sane at Heartbreak Hotel. Please check it out on Any comments or feedback welcome. Why not share your story with me, because we all have one, don't we?
