Character forged in vulnerable moments
Revealing intrinsic values that are held,
What matters most and what is truth
Deep down where our spirit thrives
Exerting itself through ways we act.

Temptations often lead people astray
When values are not firmly held intact
Flawed blemishes from which to learn,
Strong desires for pleasurable escapes
Fragile sources of human weaknesses.

Virtues are formed from higher values
Determining paths daily lives will take
Trusting vibrations of our inner spirits,
Knowing which actions right or wrong
While choosing how we want to live.

Vulnerabilities always test our mettle
Demonstrating firm values being held
Reveal realities beyond mere personas,
Character forged in vulnerable moments.
