Ethics

‘Ethics’ is about taking a breather every now and again and consider whether what you are doing is ethically correct and follows the moral high ground that you expect yourself to live up to.

Ethics and morality for me
are not about objective rules
that are easily bent or broken
they’re our own thoughts that are left unspoken

For me it’s about self-accountability
looking in the mirror
can you nod positively or shrug
at what you’ve done throughout your jog

If we can’t agree on common norms
at least we can reflect on ourselves
Be proud or ashamed
Continue or be tamed

If we forget to consider
what we did and try to defend it
trust will disappear fast
our common legacy won’t last
