When all places seem to be dead ends,
The whole world may not forgive you,
But you will have made peace with yourself.
Acceptance of the right to improve
The most righteous way of life.
Here’s to repentance
For both wrongdoings and misgivings.
Here’s to never expecting a reward
In exchange or insulting behavior.
Let’s be politely honest all the time.
It’s all about ushering in self respect.
