A Good Person

Am I a good person only if I think good thoughts?
Am I a good person only  if I do good deeds?
Am I a good person if only I know
What I think, what I do?

Really, it doesn't matter.
Every day
We all weigh our own souls.

Don't trust the sanctimonious
Who use their 'goodness' as a weapon
To bludgeon and bemuse.
Their wanting leaks through the gaps.

It's easy.
First do no harm.
It's not rocket science.
Am I a good person?
Who's to say.
