Best conscience, philosophy that relies on
Judgments made by non-consequential others,
Those on the peripheral, without substance,
Without the privilege to judge.
They must remember themselves,
Before they evoke the power of
Are so heavy when they rebound
To seek retribution.
Absolute attentiveness to detail
Must be the purpose, what else is there to strive for?
Reason in the majority must be
The rationale! Or must it?
Would that result in a dishonest decision?
For who, you or I? Them or us?
Must conscience have a reason?
For a long estimation of life,
I presume it must play its part.
Yet, who are we to judge?
Are we so entangled in our divine
Right to moderate what we feel is right?
Perhaps the detention of conscience allows
Us to reconcile the differences we
Have with ourselves. Intervention
Must by no means be left entirely to others,
But indicate an inner change.
Embodied in the fact that
Conscience is no longer a matter
Activated by potential views held
By others, the conscience merely
Indicates there is a potential to harm,
Or hurt, or do wrong.
Remove the act that causes the
Conscience to activate,
And we become free, and so,
Without equal, authentic, at last
Important to life, because we live.
