Churned in the Soul

A powerful and an intense poem by Elsy, in Different Truths.

The ache that burnt

into conscience

grew into a blaze.

 

It was doused,

but then the soul

went up in flames!

 

Which is more agonizing?

muffling the conscience

or mashing the soul?

 

Unheeding the guilty prick,

or neglecting the call of soul?

 

Is it not more benign

to be unfair to oneself,

than to another’s self?

 

What if it calls for

the sagacity of a sage

or the forbearance of a stoic!
