Character,the essence of a human soul,
is of the nature-nurture kind of ilk,
moulded into shapes considered whole
by lessons learned, nourished by mothers' milk.
The most discerning of us act post-thinking,
contemplation always undertaken
of consequence twixt joy and sorrow linking,
virtue, as its own reward mistaken.
And should we have the plot misunderstood,
vice takes its grip to wrest us from the good.
