INTEGRITY

INTEGRITY

Integrity
Is standing up
For what
You believe in.

It is treating everyone
Equally and fairly,
Acting independent
Of others that do otherwise.

It is being
Open and honest,
Responsible for
All of your actions.

It is speaking out
When others
Are treated poorly.

It is refusing
To participate
In actions
Detrimental to others.

It is admitting
And apologising
For your errors,
When mistakes
Are made.

It is respecting
Your environment,
Your fellow humans,
And your self.

Integrity
Is not a characteristic,
It is
A way of life.

It is
What you do,
And what you say,
Always.

It sets you
Apart from others,
It defines
You as a person.

Treat others
As you would want
To be treated.

Be upstanding,
Be forthright,
Be conscious
Of your actions.

Remember
To always
Act
With integrity.
