Personal Conviction

Sometimes in the end,
it’s all about the way you bend.
The way you sway, the way you play.
The way you end your every day.
The truth that hurts, but is still spoken.
The honesty through loss of token.
These are traits that build a soul
without the need to bribe, cajole.
The foundation of integrity sublime
that is not a tool, a means to climb
but merely the very make-up of true
that lives deep down inside of you.

Sometimes in the end,
it’s all about the thoughts you send.
The needs you meet, the way you treat
the way you stand amid the heat.
The way you comfort, the way you soothe
the obstacles that you remove.
These are aspects that cannot be bought
cannot be given, but only taught.
The mortar by which your core is set
it is not a game, a place to bet
It is merely part of wisdom learned
true character cannot be found, it’s earned.
