 Virtues and Vices
Fighting back to back
Struggling to dominate
And be the one to win.
Purposeful intentions
Easily slip by
The busy mind and heart.

Vices those habits
We like at the start
They weigh us down
Cumbersome, heavy
Thief of money and time
Reputation and energy
In a not so easy knot
Tangled and drawn tight

Virtues build character
Light, strong and free
Lifts up what surrounds
Carries it oh so high
Extends to community
Rejoices with the good
Strives to give away
That which is love.
