I remember how morals used to lead my life.
How every step I took was guided by careful thinking.
There would first occur a meeting between the heart and mind,
Before consensus would finally be reached.
Sometimes a little perusal of the Christian holy book would also take place.

Now, however, more than I care to admit,
What they call “going with the flow” has been prevalent.
I see myself taking action before putting any thought to it.
But, at least there is hope for one who has realised their mistake,
Only that I wonder if there is a possibility of ever being principled again!
