Be Equal to all!


From a distance you may not know who is watching
Across the bridge you may not know who is waiting
Before you, you may not know who was presiding
After you, you may not know who may be succeeding
For when you were there,
You never got to know who were pretending
The one and one surety of realization only depends on you
Whether pretending or being genuine lies on you
But the end will always be justified
Choose to be good and to be good to all
Choose to be nice and to be nice to all
Decide to be fair and be sincere to all
At the end someone else will grade you
No matter how wise you are,
How brilliant you may be,
And how glibly facile you may be
Someone you may have discriminated,
Others that you may have prejudiced
May be chosen to say something about you,
May be called to write a speech on you
How would you want them to do it?
To be precise, To be honest, to be sincere?
All lies on you, Just be equal to all!

Do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets" (Matthew 7:12)
