If I Was A Better Man - Poem by Eric Cockrell

if i was a better man...
i'd have done more
to combat world hunger...

to bring about peace,
to help the sick and dying,
to listen to the lonely...

to stand up for equality,
and to stand against prejudice.
to take in the homeless....

to forgive, and ask for forgiveness.
to understand without judging,
to love without asking

to be loved...
if i was a better man....
but because i am

the man that i am...
i'll keep trying... be better!
