Virtues

bind us all in eternity

By HufflecupPublished 4 months ago 1 min read

chaos will always be birthed from the ashes

honor will burn away your soul and call it righteous

compassion will flicker in the wind but never fade

patient roots thrive quietly

hope is a flower blooming in dim light

determination is a seed making a long journey home

curiosity will brave daunting depths

truth is a mirror distorting reality

luck is a singular blessing or a collective curse

integrity will turn a heart to steel

wit will make a lonely savior

equity leaves no one to dig the graves

serenity is a calming farce

faith is the ghost of love

imagination always gives a second chance

duty is a double-edged promise

valor makes rulers of the broken

persistence means survival leaves you empty

    This is some amazing work - the line about luck and "determination is a seed making a long journey home" - so good!
