"The Strength of Character"
       The rhyme sticks and stones become

in grained in the essence of the heart, body

and steps of the human being.

       In the silence of the response there

emerges the character.

       Whose character? Yours? Mine? Whose?

It is the ideal character that strives to the

invisible, invincible power of truth of heart,

mind, motivation and action.

       It is the exquisite powers that deepens,

evolves, widens, explores in a land of a

cesspool of attacks.

       Gentle power that is so soft that it is

mistaken for ignorance.

       But it rebounds in loving wisdom

of the true just of life.

a poem by Dietra Reid
