I never knew how to answer this question:

“Am I a good person?”

This would lead me down a rabbit hole
Of confusing questions and painful contemplation
I would need to review my script of lies
Maybe there’s a way I can revise the truth
I can weigh in both the bad and the good
In the hopes of an answer, I would like

Is there a form of measurement
We can use to determine this?
Because I need to know
Am I a good person?

I can make a list of mistakes I’ve made
Place them in categories
Or rank them from the very worst
From actions to words
Let the world know how cruel I can be

Look for forgiveness and redemption
Hoping it would fix wounds,
Build bridges,
Find everything that was ever lost,
And pick up what was broken
And maybe then
I will consider myself a good person
