Personification of virtue (Greek ἀρετή) in Celsus Library in Ephesos, Turkey (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Virtue is above the need for truth
It calls to something far more powerful
Deep within
It is honour here without need of proof
It shows the inner warrior
The place to begin
It’s nothing more nor less than perfect choice
When everything within the soul
Could yield
It’s how light comes, how angels have a voice
And gives the truest heart the
Perfect shield

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

  2. Virtue is indeed a gift not everyone acquires. But I like how you say it gives the heart the perfect shield. Well done Helen.

  3. Love that last line. 🙂
