To Make This World A Better Place

For the betterment of mankind there has always been a case
Make yourself a better person to make this World a better place
If each of us sought self improvement went in search of God
Mistrust and greed would lose out badly and goodness and honesty would win,
I can only speak for myself for others I cannot speak
I have room for self improvement self improvement I must seek
I can make this World better sure as night and day I can
If I become a better person that will help the cause of man,
I can't make the World better if to others I am rude
If I live for my self interest and have the wrong attitude
If I can't strive for self improvement to myself I cannot say
That in the betterment of mankind I might have a part to play
And still I pass the blame to others and a simple truth I cannot face
That I must make myself a better person to make this World a better place.
