Be True To You

Sometimes, it’s best to speak up.
Sometimes, it’s best to be quiet.
Sometimes, it’s best to hold on.
Sometimes, it’s best to let go.
Sometimes, it’s best to be brave.
Sometimes, it’s best to be afraid.

Sometimes, it’s best to fight.
Sometimes, it’s best to refrain.
Sometimes, it’s best to be humble.
Sometimes, it’s best to show off.
Sometimes, it’s best to be alone.
Sometimes, it’s best to seek company.

Sometimes, it’s best to reveal.
Sometimes, it’s best to conceal.
Sometimes, it’s best to give.
Sometimes, it’s best to receive.
Sometimes, it’s best to be hard.
Sometimes, it’s best to be soft.

All the time, it’s best to be yourself.
