I’d rather be good

It often seems like being bad pays more than being good,

But I prefer to settle for less, than live a life misunderstood,

For I’ve never wanted to hurt or cheat anyone,

For I’ve never wanted to cause any pain or distress,

For residing in happiness rests in goodness of mind

Because residing in bliss means being of good heart,

So let you light shine on all and care for all those you meet

Life is not about trying simply to beat,

Any of your friends to the best things in life,

Combining and joining up is always the right

Thing to do and helps you too

Share all this good fortune,

That feels better than being miserly and keeping it all to yourself.

  1. I was having similar thoughts in morning what did i achieve being good, sometimes I feel my feelings are being trampled all the time did I settle for less? But as you said sharing good fortune is better than being miserly and keeping to yourself. Although it’s hard!
