Character and Reputation

Written by: ridge mayberry

Character is by far
An important part of who we are.
More important than
Your reputation can
Ever be.
But you see,
Some others would say I'm wrong,
And say that my song
Is a heap of lies,
But I'll always ignore their cries,
And stand by my words
As I soar with the birds.
So work not on your
Reputation but your character,
Reputation is others' thoughts of you,
But you should always be true
To the character that defines
The deepest confines
Of your being,
Giving your life meaning.
