It's hard to do the right thing!
What is our conscience, anyway?
The way to connect with the Higher Power's directions?
Then why is it so easy to bury its pangs under a moment's wants?
Shouldn't we be able, recognizing the goodness of what
the inner voice is telling us, stop the harmful behavior
and grab a hand, that tries to rescue us?
God, grant me the power to avoid
doing harm to me and to others;
to do, what will uphold my
dignity, as Your creation,
and offer same to
those around me.
