is inclined to bravado in assuming a front for presentation.
The soul of man does not like to be examined,
does not like to share a history of specifics,
does not like to be the target of much criticism.
The soul of man knows the show of vanity,
knows the screen of privacy,
knows the forefront of the stage,

The soul of man admires and disregards,
admits and dismisses,
lies and cheats.
The soul of man is violent and pacific,

is loved and hated.
The soul of man is cajoled and cowed,
is convicted and crushed,
is convinced and conversant.
The soul of man dresses in many variants hidden within the body,
hides many from sight until released,
hides both the immature and the adult ways,
hides the shameful and the reticent,
hides the addictions and the habits until such can no longer be resisted.
The soul of man can reach out for the stars,
can wallow in the mud.
The soul of man needs direction to be seen at its very best.

the intensity of love,
the vibrancy of love.
The soul of man can forsake and adopt,
can seek and find,
can shelter and protect.
The soul of man in the proximity of the spirit exhibits partial influence on the character of man.”
