In the embers of history

In the embers of history

I am fascinated by law
Thrilled by its prowls
A seeming pull on us to fit in
Or face the consequences
Its tenets bound
By the complications of non-compliance

I witness daily the struggle within
The lopsided internal dialogue
To be or not to be
Quickened by a hush drive to get in
But at what cost, what dire consequences
The law reminds and punishes 

History watches and records
Diligently x-raying our actions and inactions 
For the day of reckoning
I love history
In the end, we shall all be judged by history
Our legacy and not law
