That Better That You Do For You - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

You can not make me any better,
Than the better I make myself.
You can not do a better best,
To beat up what I have left.

But don't you cry,
Cause...
That better that you do will be for you,
And not for me to better.

So don't you cry,
Cause...
The better that you do will be for you,
And not for me to better.

You can not make me any better,
Than the better I make myself.
You can not do a better best,
To beat up what I have left.

So don't you cry,
Cause...
That better that you do will be for you,
And not for me to better.

Don't cry,
Cause...
The better that you do will be for you,
And not for me to better.

THAT better that you do will prove to you,
You don't need me to do better.
