True Virtues

True Virtues,

the paths, the roads we incessantly pursue.

For only True virtues can lead us to happiness

that is the innate destiny of us all.



a state of mind and heart, that suffices.

For out of Abundance arises unconditional love

that is all pervasive and extraordinary.



the ultimate answer to all our quandaries.

For when we let Love be the motivation for all our actions,

we don’t have to constantly think about what is the right thing to do.



a path that we must find the courage to tread.

For Earnestness is an instinct for those who follow their heart

and pretense for those who give up.



a word of wisdom we must live by.

For amidst the whirlwinds of our outer and inner universes,

only Resilience can ensure the perpetuation of our true selves.



a rock that we must make our minds to be.

For Patience is the door to those hidden treasures of the universe,

that we often walk past in the haste of our lives.



a flower to be cherished.

For hope nurtures our faith in the awaited bliss

that we all ultimately wish to attain.



a virtue so wholesome.

For those who aim and learn to ‘be’ bliss,

attain all that is the innate destiny of us all.
