Things I’m Learning

Honesty to others,

A virtue in its right.

Not the final goal I seek

To self I set my sight.


Stoic is my nature,

A strong and noble trait.

Until I learn to show my flaws,

True courage lies in wait.


I freely give to others,

Their needs become my own.

Losing self along the way,

For that I must atone.


I dwell in constant limbo,

Tween past and futures pull.

When I learn to live right now,

My heart will then be full.

      Thank you Jane. I’m really starting to like writing verse instead of prose. Must be the state of mind I’m in these days. Thanks again and hope you’re doing ok.

        You’re welcome! I say go with it-I used to write a little of both back in the day but lost the knack for it. Your verse is great reading though! I’m doing ok & hope you’re doing well too.
