Character

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Here is the next in my series...

Character by April Gerard

The definement of character,
it seems so simple sometimes
doesn't?


Its not though.
The diamond in the rough,
the pearl hidden in the clam,
and the wake of tears
that flood a full grown man.


These, these are defining things.
Whether one has integrity
does not mean one will not fail.


Whether one has honor,
does not mean that the world
would understand what honor was or is.


defining character...


Its hard to do,
because it requires
the outsider to come to an understanding
of the insider;

of the individual
whose character is being defined
in the eyes of those who know
not their heart or their mind.


It saddens me this..
this concept that we place
on others.

That somehow it should be
known what's right,
what's wrong; as if it were
mere common sense.


But its not you see,
far from it.

It's all relative,
illusions to the mind.
Based on the perceptions
placed in the You and the Me.

When one does what is required to be done, perception turns to character.

Loved the lines...

This is very thought provoking. So much judging is done of the character of others. I need to tend to mine instead.
