I Need a Virtue
It's true for me if I believe it.
I may believe it, but it may be wrong.
It might be a lie.
So, I may believe something wrong.
I can refuse to believe it, but it can be right.
There's no right, no wrong,
Or there is no truth for me.
Anyway, I must believe in something.
So, I need a virtue.
I need the truth.
Now, all I know is that I have a need.
Can anyone tell me,
Because I need to know,
'Can a virtue be taught? '
