We after all, are only human, and fall short.

We say we have character
Better than our neighbor,
(but we have secrets in our past),
Integrity, honor, qualities, we want this cast.

We say we have character
Better than our friends.
It flows in our household
Matures our tolerance as we grow old.

We say we have character
A code that we live by.
Living with mistakes hidden
The tide thatís tuff when ridden.

We say we have character,
The example we try to ensue,
Is somehow too heavy a task.
When, where, how will we ever unmask?

This is very good work, but I do agree the masks we wear do eventually grow tiresome and or old!

But these masks may only fool ourselves. Bill

Ahhh, those masks can get mighty heavy with time. Bravo. A fine work.
