Not The Best You Can Be

A common weed never does bloom like a rose
And though a thug can dress in a gentleman's clothes
This does not make him a gentleman in any way
Clothes does not make the man only true for to say
You are what you are though what you are may not be the best you can be
Of this you will not have disagreement from me
Even in the best of people some room for self improvement does remain
It is from recognition of your own personality flaws that one self improvement does attain
Material greed of corruption as ever the bane of humanity
And the selfless as always just a tiny minority
But to live as a better person is all up to you
Good people for others good things always do
A good person may never be one of the admired of the town
But is always willing to help the one who is down.
