The qualities within://our faults and flaws


The soul that’s inside
floats and flies.
I feel it trapped
beneath the surface.

The mind that’s inside
rants and raves,
yearning to learn
and wishing the torrent to end.

The heart that’s inside
yearns for it’s love.
Holes pierce its shell,
bleeding in rivers.

The emotions inside
swirl around in mystery.
They ponder and question:
validity of reality.

The memories within
stir and strengthen,
move and weaken,
defining our appearances.

The desires within:
we want what we wish;
needing and craving;
supply for our demands.

The qualities within:
our faults and flaws
shown through our actions;
enlightened by our deeds.

The beauty within:
that tenuous grin
of laughter and joy
masking the face.

The faith within
looks up to hope,
gives us our courage
and sometimes blinds us.

The intent within:
good (or maybe evil)
is our own
and influenced by all.

The blood that’s inside
keeps us alive;
flows and runs
around and around.

What is inside us
is what defines us.
Remember yourself
and pride on what’s inside.
