Ain’t Gonna Copy You

“Dig, ‘cause I got my own world to live through, and I ain’t gonna copy you.” – Jimi Hendrix


While Hendrix’s song “If 6 Was 9” is considered by most as the “individualist’s anthem” for the late sixties and early seventies, the feeling and overall message of the song still resonates today – and maybe even more so than it did back then. With the mass media telling impressionable people how they should look and act, it’s easy to forget that the most beautiful thing a person can be is not the next Kim Kardashian or Kobe Bryant, but the first you. Don’t forget the world/image you’ve crafted just to be what is universally accepted.
