It Builds Character

Discipline is the thing
cold as steel.
Singing tones of blue
The Truth to reveal.

But, the thing about discipline is
it ages finer than Cabernet.
Turns rot wine to vintner's pride,
Add just a pinch of perspective.

This poem was written after reading Emily Dickinson's poem, “Hope is the thing with feathers" - (314). Of course, discipline and hope are not on the surface friends, but given enough time and perspective, they can work together well.
