I Don't Need To Be

I don’t need to be a farmer 
To know life is hard work and sacrifice
I don’t need to be Gandhi 
To know peace is the only way 
I don’t need to Martin Luther King Jr. 
To have a dream of unity 
I don’t need to be a samurai 
To know that honor is expressed daily
By meeting ones responsibilities 
With determination and care 
I don’t need to be Mother Teresa 
To Know it is our responsibility to lift up others
I don’t need to be Jesus 
To Know right from wrong 
And always do the right thing 
I don’t need to be Buddha 
To know one should always strive 
To be logical and emotionally sound 
I don’t need to be the devil 
To know the weakness of men 
I don’t need to be the Anti-Christ 
To see our future
