A Man’s Character

 
 

The echoes of his words,
The photographs of his deeds,
The vividness of his causes,
The depth and breadth of his love and friendship,
The flames of his passion,

 
His silence in grief,
His humility in defeat,
His restraint in the midst of temperament,
His beliefs in his abilities and creed,
His trust in providence and grace of The Omnipotent—

 
A man’s character
Could be his fate,
A self imposed verdict;
Or the crowning glory
Of his determination and will.

 
Either way,
It is his truth.
A man’s character
Is the indelible imprints
Of his soul.
