To My Own Self As A Person

To my own self as a person i can only stay true
And to the individual pay the respect she or he is due
And that goes to all people of every race and creed
Since red is the color of our blood when we bleed
To live as a good person your best you can only try
And the right to a fair go of none we ought to deny
Racists live in every city and village and in every town
Yet you only put down yourself when in your words you put others down
What you give in life in Karma you receive
That is my opinion on that i believe
With my way of thinking on this matter many may disagree
But i only say how it does seem to me
And to me a man or a woman in their ways are small
If they do not believe on a fair go for all.
