When This Is Over

When this is over
You’ll still have your character
To deal with.
Times will alter,
But there never is an after.
That’s to say, there is,
But business 
Is the thing: merely continuing:
Busyness and nothing more. 

And there you are,
Left with character,
Its strength and flaw,
To grow, evolve, refine, define
Through change and understanding,
Standing under with humility,
God, destiny, not pining 
From mistakes, goals missed 
And all the things ones’s pis_ed away from ignorance.

We’ve talents, gifts
To sift through, filter out;
Finding what we’re all about
To work and use
Amusing us and fusing them
To worlds around, 
To bond and bind societies;
Bid welcome to the mishy-mashy miscellany,

Watch the mind: it’s shifty, tricky;
Thus, the one security
Is to be found in in purity!
Work on it!
