To Be As Good A Person - Poem by Francis Duggan

To be as good a person as I can be
And treat others as I would want them to treat me
To know how to receive and to know how to give
And to respect self and others and live and let live
To not be the judgemental one of the town
And never in words ever put others down
I'd like those who know me when me they recall
To say he follows the truth of a fair go for all
To pay everybody respect and fair due
You cannot be true to others if to self you are not true
For to live as a decent person I only wish to be known
Treat everyone as an equal and to each their own
To live as a good person that and nothing more
This is something you may have heard me say before.
