Marvin Brato Sr (March 2,1960 / Davao City, Philippines)
To Be Good
A legacy I would instill
something made with a will
which can truly stands a lifetime
and emulated by generations of mine
I wanted just to be good
not someone best to behold
sometimes it connotes as the least
from among the million in a contest
being good is enough for me
its when I could love everybody
by sharing the good things I can do
without competing from others' ego
Better be good than best
because its an easier quest
without trying quite so hard
to prove oneself to get reward
Being good at heart is enough
it gives courage not being tough
where goodness will flow just naturally
in everything that is done wholeheartedly
