An irol will

Is as hard as steel

While the eye may cowar

The heart shall dare 

to seize the hour,

to fight, to bear.


A sharpened wit

Is as precious as wheat

And a conscience at peace

and free of regrets

like a mother's kiss

on the quivering cheek

of a child that's weak

and frets.

"And a conscience at peace and free of regrets, like a mother's kiss on the quivering cheek of a child that's weak and frets."

Really like this Mae, it's a well crafted message, beautiful imagery, and so pleasurable to say out loud. Love it.
