Conscience

light-threshold4 

And if it is but pride
distressed no price of
pain will pay for such
absurd rigidity; an
obstinacy of thought
precludes less stressful
ways to make amends
as yet the mirror turns.

Agreed, it isn’t hard to
see who’s wrong and
fathom why accepting
that forever and a day
is bound to conscience
duly burned.
