Which Do You Choose

Lost in a sea of faces
So easy to get caught up
Stand out, be yourself
Or blend in, be unknown
Put yourself up for judgment
Or hide and be safe
If you choose the former
You’ll be known forever
If lucky, in positive light
But too often in negative
If you choose the latter
You’ll be lost forever
Which do you choose?
Be known and judged
Or lost and safe?
