VIRTUE

My virtue
Displayed in a shadow box
upon a silken cloth
behind bubble-like glass
protected
honored
valued
treasured
and respected 


Behind the bubble-like glass
my virtue
guides decisions
misleads intentions
reflects morals
directs consciousness


My virtue
sometimes opposes
strength
integrity
righteousness
and peeks through
cracks in the bubble-like glass
to linger 
in lust
pride
envy
anger
gluttony
greed
sloth


Battling its way back
through a pin hole
in the bubble-like glass
into the shadow box
to rest upon
a silken cloth
that eventually
wears holes
as a worn rag
that has grown tired 
from wiping
senseless burdens
