Reputation


Your reputation
Is what you think you are
In a galaxy of people
You can be a shining star
Your reputation
It can make you
Or it can break you

Your reputation
Is what other people see
It’s their way of making you
Into what they want you to be
You can be broken
By words spoken
By your reputation

Your reputation
Can push you ahead
It can give you wings of gold
Or feet of lead
Your reputation
It can make you
Or it can break you

Your reputation
Is based upon your actions
It loses its grip
If you don’t give satisfaction
You can be broken
By words spoken
By your reputation

—–The Prophet of Life
