Character

A Poem by Tate Morgan

Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders

.

What makes a man's character

are built of actions on life's field

Not from the size of his body

nor of the power it may wield

 

The traits that we adore in them

what we all wish that we could be

Sown from seeds of imperfection

and that handsome humility

 

Rising again, time after time

drawing on strength all but gone

But oh what lofty heights indeed

for us to place our laurels on

I've always felt that a man's character directed his actions rather than his actions directing his character. Good character will produce noble actions while poor character often produces objectionable actions or even criminal activity. But to quote Daniel Webster. "What is a single man and all the good or ill which might befall him when compared to the great transactions of a nation. No man may suffer too much or fall too soon if he does so in defense of the constitution."

Thank you very much
"Seeds of imperfection" and "handsome humility" are understood by few, Tate, especially in politics. If only our nation's leaders believed your poem and demonstrated they understood the power of embracing imperfection and humility.

I once read "character is what you do when others aren't looking." I'm not sure that's practiced or understood in this social media culture today. Your poem shines with wisdom and sincerity.
