Poem: A Man With Integrity

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

A man with integrity reflects on a man who takes care of his family. He has a compassionate heart. He stands up for his beliefs. He puts his family first. He is determined to succeed. He enjoys life being a stand up man who loves his family.

"A Man With Integrity"

He is a man with integrity
who stands up to challenges.

He is strong willed
with a compassionate heart.

He puts his family first
through hard work,
love and devotion.

No matter the task
he is determined to succeed.

He has a fun-loving personality
which is admired by others.

He is a stand up man
who loves every moment
in each day.

There is no better test of a man's integrity than his behavior when he is wrong.

Thank you so much.

I'm certainly glad my parents instilled this value to us when we were children.

There are many who just don't care.

Have fantastic evening.

Integrity is something that, sadly, can often be missing in those that we have relationships with. I agree with you that it is the best quality that we possess and, hopefully, by our example we can pass it on to our children or to those who are close to us. Your poem highlights this important quality.

I'm so glad that you've been blessed with the two most important men in your life having integrity.

Luckily my Dad has this also.

It's the younger generation that seems to be lacking it.

Have a great day & stay cool.

It's quite hot here today.

My dad was such a man, and my husband is also a man of integrity. We know others who also fit that label.

Thank you.

These type of men are usually the ones who are a bit old school.

A little rare these days.

Take care & stay safe.

A man who cares for his family and puts their interest first, who is compassion and who stands up for his beliefs is truly a man of integrity which is a great virtue in a person. Nice poem Brenda. Thanks for sharing.

Integrity is obviously a great asset from God. Some say that Lincoln had a lot of this great spiritual virtue.

Misbah,

For some reason you comments keep ending up in a spam folder. I'm not sure why Hubpages is sending them there.

Thank you for reading my work. I appreciate it.

Have a nice day.
