To Behave

What does this mean
to behave?
I am wild and wear
swishing skirts
that billow when I twirl.

I fly with birds
and float with clouds,
what does this mean,
to behave?

Does it mean be true
to who I am,
more fully express
my unique talents?

Does it mean to you
who have said it,
be more what you want
and stop this “nonsense”?
