When you Forget your Principles

by Survivor48

When misery dominates cognitions,
Morals travel to a foreign land,
Leaving logic to solve problems unassisted.

Guidance is challenging as thoughts think ruthlessly,
Trying hard to find the right perception,
But life always hits into hardships.

We want a solution back to meaning,
Where simplification from life seems to make sense,
A place that can be happier through our own ethics.

The return to principles starts with remembrance of purpose,
Recognizing the fight we have been struggling over,
As realizing goals will help discover people's beliefs.

Ethics and Integrity contest entry
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
