Too little and there will be naught to learn,
yet too much and the ordeal will only burn.

Still we must dance on this edge of a blade,
and arise again whenever we have strayed.

“Just enough” means exactly what we say:
do what is right, in the most balanced way.


Should we strive to do things right,
or what is right as well as we might?

All the better if we can unite the two,
still, how often is that actually true?

Do we choose a fast journey to fame,
or a road with truth as our highest aim?

One path is certainly easier to master,
yet is not wrong done right a disaster?

No excuse will do at the end of the day;
our conscience will still have its say.


By the deeds unworthy of our souls,
do we dig shame’s engulfing holes.

Still, we must let our integrity show;
do we fall to despair or dare to grow?

Forgiveness may or may not be earned;
redemption is within the lesson learned.

Through this pain we recall our vow:
to never again such betrayal allow.

May we bear this remembrance well;
the choice between life and living hell.
