What the world needs

As I look critically at society and its people,
On my journey to find how people
Make the most of their lives,
And how people can
Make the most of their lives,
I find many people
Who are unable to get to the top
Quick to think negatively about
Those who are at the top;
Or who are making their way to the top;
It’s not everybody who gets to the top
Through foul means;
It’s a false belief that the good guys
Always end last in the race of life;
One mustn’t be unscrupulous
To get to the top;
One mustn’t dirty one’s hands to make it big;
I have never believed in getting what one wants
Through unscrupulous means;
To enrich oneself through foul means
Or to gain power through unscrupulous means
Is to make oneself an elephant on sandy feet;
It is possible to become rich
Without cheating anyone;
It is possible to rise to power in a clean way;
That is what I want for you;
That is what the world needs;
That people realize their full potential in clean ways;
In ways that are right;
In ways that don’t break any law, human or divine.
