Shine


Poesy plus Polemics

crystal facets of conscience are dulled
by abrasive regret, harsh acid of guilt
opaque film of ambivalence

preserve its inveterate luster
by walking with righteous conviction
act with honor, be firmly decisive

we’re obliged by the raw gift of living
to refine it through personal endeavor
adding shine to the notion of human

perfection is not the objective
our foibles and failures are welcome
opportunities to upgrade our gem
