Is it not a fair bigger crime to lose one's identity

Is it not a fair bigger crime to lose one's identity To forsake one's integrity

Is it not a fair bigger crime to lose one's identity To forsake one's integrity To lay aside one's values and morals

I would argue this not to be a maxim I would argue that there are always other ways To belong to a company of one Can be far more satisfying and far more rewarding

Than losing one's self ..... just to belong!
