Inherent- a poem
By Tony DeLorger © 2012
Inherent the fall to lesser ground,
instilled the obsolescence of humans bound,
to draw from potential and goodness laid,
within a soul of promise made.
Extracting the doubts and evil will,
buried deep within this human ill,
of ineptitudes not faced or dealt,
pervading all the suffering felt.
But within this conflict and struggled life,
beyond innate and uncertain strife,
there is a choice and nurturing light,
that hold us true in darkest night.
We are the captains of our course,
regardless of inherent force,
in choice do we find freedom’s gift,
in choice do we set our lives adrift.
Into a world of promise make,
a life fulfilled by past mistakes,
in accepting fault and truth in heart,
a life begins again from start.
Inherent traits are but a choice,
to accept of deny in strongest voice,
and follow our dreams and live in truth,
in joy and love our living proof.
