There is no one without conscience. Men supress their conscience to do evil but their conscience continues to disturbs them unknown to people.

 

 
Why is conscience too scared
Covered itself in oblivious spirituality
Infinite to all senses outside
As it hits its gavel in the hearts of men
 
Why is conscience too fragile
Confined within the ribs of men
Even at the wrong times and places
Yet remains ever just and sincere
 
Why is conscience too subservient
Masked even by little lies and smiles
But remains the best judge
In the courts of the souls of men
 
Why is conscience too voiceless
Speaking too loud to be heard outside
As victims and casualties increase by the day
Dividing  the bonds of humanity aloud.
 
Why?

"...Why is conscience too voiceless
Speaking too loud to be heard outside
As victims and casualties increase by the day
Dividing...'Why?"
A question that ponders and digs deep for answers in my heart on a daily basis, looking to the heavens.

Sincerely,
~Gwendolyn

This is a question that needs to be answered, it is true. It is frightening when it seems these days so many seem to not have consciences. You are an excellent writer, my friend.
