The Person That You Are

It does not matter what race or color you are black or white or brown
Or if you are quite wealthy or a poor one of the town
Or if you live as homeless or drive a brand new expensive car
It only matters at your life's journey end the person that you are
Of how you treated others on your life's journey's way
Have you caused offense to others by cruel things of them you did say
Or are you one though not wealthy yourself to a poor person who was a good friend
On how we treat other people matters at life's journey's end
Some of the materially successful on their way to wealth and renown
For their own gain and self interest known to drag others down
Some very wealthy people in their ways very small
In a fairer World it would not be that the winners would take all
On the hill of material success you may have climbed quite far
But this does not tell us anything of the person that you are.
