You Can Only Live To Be

You can only live to be the best you can be
And the one who is successful to you may not be so to me
For success it does seem is a relative thing
Though the praises of those deemed to be successful many do choose to sing
But one can hardly claim as a successful person the one who in word or deed does drag others down
Even though many may claim her or him as a success of the town
There is more to success than being wealthy and famous and known far and wide
You are tainted in some ways if of a fair go others you have denied
The successful person with her or his lot in life is quite satisfied
And do not boast of their achievements as a sense of pride
Your idea of what constitutes success in many ways is different to mine
But your opinions in life do suit me fine
You can only live to be the best you can be
And of course this should include living with integrity.
