What’s more important than what you believe
Is how you choose each moment to behave,
For if your actions cause others to grieve,
The guilt of that you’ll carry to your grave—
Unless by then your heart has hardened so
You’ve forfeited your own humanity,
Joining the ranks of mankind’s fiendish foe
To abrogate both love and sanity.
As you choose to behave—the choice is yours—
Know that one way infects, the other cures.
