Seed of Character

How often will we close our hearts
over some dread feel of shame or guilt?
learned in blind participation
of youthful innocence
in a life sentence imposed
by a heartless society

Imagine, if you will, just this
the feel of freedom from the weight
of belief imposed by yesteryear
and feel your spirit drawing near
the core of heart exposed
within the glow of starlit skies

Then if you can, remember when
you first found love so true
that the world and all its rules
just disappeared

Breathe deep the memory
awakening this seed of character

Nurture its becoming
for the heart and soul demand
no less than this
a memory of exquisite bliss
awakening yet once again
in us
