Beyond Conscious- Conscience

We speak like a saint
and write like a philosopher
we know of convictions
words wrapped with compassion

yet our actions define 
merely a glass of water

minds had memorised a holy creed 
chanting sermons all day long
we tell all what to believe
so they sing with us, verses of our song 

wise doctrines hits soul like a pebble in an ocean
ripples…
then sink deep nowhere found
along with every other emotion

We are streams flowing only our way
uncaring about the lands in drought
yet wait for those in shadows gray
to spot us and sought

to feel plenty is agony
to feel a smidgen
What a blasphemy!

tickle your conscience from deep slumber
to shower hope and humanity
biding a call from above, of thunder
when in you glitters all warm flames of empathy?
