Defects of Character

2013 C. Phil Brunson

In reviewing my motives and feelings,
I have found that I have several longings,
Some would call them defects of character,
I would call them enhancements with splendor.

I want to be selfish, without masking,
To provide you a life, like new seedlings,
I want to be greedy, without ponder,
To provide you a love, like a sculptor.

You never knew the world as I, with all the blessings,
I will be jealous, without any failings,
I will be envious, without any blunder,
Of your new life and love, as you prosper.

I want to indulge, without any trimmings,
Smiles, laughs, and happiness, with heartstrings,
I want to be glutinous, without any smatter,
Of your joy, and discovery, as your old life goes shatter.

Not all times will be without some dings,
However, most times will be joyous wellsprings,
Some would call them defects of character,
I would call them enhancements with splendor.
