what i can remember
is a lot like water
trickling down a page
of the most beautiful colors
-Marie Digby 'Unfold'


For wit is not wit,
Be it unspoken

And humor shall it only once be shown,
Is just a hiccup of the soul

Bravery, shall you cower in the corner?
Is it a mere consideration of your heart?

Loving kindness shall it be exhibited but once,
Is not a quality of thee

We have the qualities of the divine within us,
And we can have them all the time

But should we choose to end them,
Then the evil will entwine,
And darkness shall shine

"You have to take the good with the bad, smile when you're sad, love what you've got and remember what you had... Always forgive but never forget, learn from your mistakes but never regret, people change, things go wrong, just remember, life goes on."

Clever! I love the rhythem of your poem. :)
