'True Character'


We falter at times when we least expect it just like that We drop the ball we've been dribbling forever without a second thought we are faced with a dilemma no one could foresee Sometimes in those moments our true character is born

    Someone once said that true character is doing what is right when no one is looking. This is a very thought provoking write, Wilma. [I loved the sunshine we had yesterday (did a braai), but it has started to rain again this evening - a bit sick of the wet and soggy garden.] Blessings, Suzette

    Yes, what is inside comes out in tough times. We need to nourish our being -what is put in and what is introduced. What comes out can be great if we are full of the good stuffs. Love ya, Toquyen

    This is a true fact my friend! I believe that is when our character is developed, at least that is when it is shown! It's hards to go through these events in our lives but we must go through them at times, it's just a part of life! What a wondrous poem about just that Wilma! Great Work!!

    Wilma, this in incredible! These words are very powerful and true. Character is something the world could use more of in my opinion. Thanks for sharing....Have a Great Day!

    Thought provoking write! You know, sometimes that ball is NOT worth the effort, sometimes its not only the wrong court, its the wrong sport all together. Strength, I think, is also shown by what we do after we realize we are human, frail and finally realize that we need help or a new direction. Loved this! Cyndi PS-- your words on my Darfur poem really moved me. Thank you for seeing my intent.
