Character Vs Gifts

Character vs Gifts

Such a strange phenomenon.
Character un-virtuous,
Talents filled with brilliance,
Artistry, ability of genius…
Artists of renown, (some dead)
Writing, playing, painting, singing,
Like the angel world, like angels would,
But whirling round the genius head.
Lies, theft, brute force — and nothing left.

Dichotomy and contrast, *
Contradiction, gulf and chasm in the highest.
We see wealthy and accomplished men,
Women too, revealed on TV: Corruption!

How are we to take it in,
Contain the split?
All that we can do is do
Our very best to not encourage it.

Correcting as we go along in strife and life.
Use gifts (for they are many)
To equalize the rifts and gifts *
So that the attributes of virtuous integrity
Are one of quality
In personality, identity and essence.
