One’s character is our calling card to life,
as well as,
the legacy our wake leaves behind.
Our character defines
not who we think we are,
much less what we pretend to be,
but who we really are, deep, deep, inside.
Our character is respected when,
we exude immutable honesty and steadfast frankness.
Our character is emulated when,
we are uncompromisingly ethical,
and approach everything
with unquestionable rectitude and indomitable integrity,
a spirit with a purpose and a soul with meaning.
Our character is revered when in possession of,
limitless compassion, unmaterialistic generosity
and the humblest of all wisdoms.
Our character becomes reliable through
dependable, immanent self-discipline,
helping us always deliver end results.
Our character grows through,
unyielding perseverance, unrelenting grit,
and the insatiable pursuit
of insight, knowledge and spirituality.
Out character is genuine only when,
we perennially put into practice,
inescapable forgiveness of oneself and others,
coupled with readiness
to learn and rectify,
Our character is revealed as to what we are really made of,
when demanded and required by life and its circumstances;
which may involve,
abnegation, sacrifice and even relinquishment,
as the ultimate tests
to our fiber, nature and the substance of our hearts.
Our character perennially renews itself,
and remains crystalline
through unstained innocence, unpremeditated candor,
joyful spontaneity and boundless ingenuity.
Our character builds a legacy with,
never ending and bountiful deeds,
empathetic and mindful judgment,
incomparable and unmatched ability,
and unfettered ingeniousness.
Our character transcends when,
we are “ready to be” or “forever are”
in love with life, everyone and our true love,
all with sustained passion.
Being alive presents us with countless paths
that in the pursuit of moral excellence,
elevate our character to its pinnacle,
a state of unrepentant virtuosity.
