It is this reluctance to 'commit'
It is fear to stand by our own wit
It is shame to look on and away indefinite
It is "doubt' that bites us and leaves us in a pit.
On living we must learn to think and and to decide
On evil or good, we must choose a side
On love and prejudice, we may go with a tide
On waking and realizing, our inner conscience we shall abide
Yes we judge ourselves proud, virtuous, by and by!
