Basically being true to yourself, being a strong person, stay in reality, not getting caught up in the nay-sayers, staying positive when others try to hold you down, not forgetting where you came from.  Doing all of these will make you who you are and a a real MAN/WOMAN.  Awesome poem that says so much! :)
