Being Dawns Truth

Character is like a beautiful sunset:
We know when we've seen it; and
It's face fills us with awe. Character
Is what we become as we live out
Our gifts. It's how we treat each other;
A door held open vs slammed shut;
Character is the vast difference
Between being good and seeming
To do good things. Being dawns
Truth as its morning garments
While seeming runs exhausted--
Never quite certain what to wear;
You run into beautiful sunsets when
You're not looking; like the day
I first found you.
