With Character From Within Poem by Gert Strydom

With Character From Within

Integrity is not something
about the colour of skin,
it's something at heart,
with character from within,
of what we truly are a part.

Righteousness draws to its light,
comes from a Godly relationship and insight;
brings change even if we win or loose,
by what in life we do and choose,
draws not by force or might,
but by a kind of selfless love,
that fits closer to the soul than a glove,

as daily we dwell in God's presence,
do shine as a beacon brightening the way,
in the things we constantly do and say
that tells of our presence and of our essence,
do with something special goodness portray.
