The Trio of Virtue

Once upon a time when phones had cords and # meant number, there lived a super trio. Their names were Respect, Integrity, and Kindness. This trio was very special because they could exist anywhere. It didn't matter if the group was Black or White. Christian or Muslim. Blue Devils or Tarheels. They all blended in well and helped to bridge the gaps between these groups. Even in times of discord, Respect, Integrity, and Kindness were there to help maintain civility of all those involved.
For some reason, the Trio of Virtue seems to be losing their powers. Many no longer listen to or follow their guidance. It's as if Respect, Integrity, and Kindness are no longer valued.  Luckily, there are those who want to keep them strong.
But, is there enough positive energy to revitalize this once powerful and respected trio?

Creative Frenzy

I want to write a poem
Or maybe a book
Or perhaps a song
With a snappy hook

I want to play guitar
Make music from my heart
Even learn the keyboard
Compose melodious art
I want to draw pictures
Both abstract and real
A visual image
Of how I really feel

All this creativity
Waiting to burst out
Time to start working
No time for self doubt
Gonna pick up my pen
Gonna open up my heart
With this little ditty
Being my creative start
