To be conscious is to have a conscience.
Awareness brings judgment ~ good or bad
excuses will not work
unless you’re in a coma.
Many people try to hide from their conscience
behind rocks ~ behind personas
in caves ~ behind lives
behind trees ~ behind figments of their imagination
in houses ~ and in daydreams
and many other places
in vain though ~ if you have a guilty conscience.
Clearing your conscience
and making things right
is the only way
to make your consciousness peaceful.
Try it you like it.
