A Better Me


I strive to find a better me,
a person just and true.
I want to live and not just be,
to be decent through and through.

I need to be a stronger me,
both in body and in soul.
It's not a whim, it needs to be,
for me to feel whole.

I will be that better me,
and that better me will stay.
I will be better, they'll see,
it's time to seize the day!
