Fundamental of Liar Chapter CXLIII: An Ounce


How will you control an ounce of patience?
Do you waste it in first second
Or do you keep it until the limit?

What will you think with an ounce of kindness?
Do you resent that it reveals weakness
Or do you actually wish for your good luck?

How will you struggle with an ounce of mercy?
Do you want to be pitied
Or do you ask for forgiveness?

What will you feel with an ounce of sincerity?
Do you hardly accept that because it stings
Or do you close your eyes in shame?

How will you handle an ounce of justice?
Do you hesitant to give the power for fair
Or do you take a great responsibility over it?

What will you face with an ounce of empathy?
Do you become overwhelmed with unknown emotion 
Or do you ignore it because it is alien?

How will you use an ounce of respect?
Do you show it because of fear
Or do you get sick of keep pretending?

What will you do with an ounce of gratitude?
Do you put aside your pride to say the word 
Or do you now owe an obligation that should be paid?

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
