Be a good person, but don’t waste time trying to prove it

One only can hope to live good as one can
To be a good woman or be a good man
To learn how to receive you must know how to give
And live by the moral of live and let live
Most people in their ways can be good and kind
But if you only look for flaws in others then flaws you will find
You never will become the toast of the town
If in your words you do like to put others down
You can only be the best that you can be
And if you look for good in others then good you will see
And if you cannot say good things of others nothing of them say
You are doing well in life if you can live in this way
On learning to walk the child often does fall
And to be a good person not easy at all.

  5. Powerful!
    I’ve learned I judge others by the same value system that I judge myself.
    But when I learned to be merciful to myself I began to see the good in others.
    Inspiring post!
    Thanks
