Cynicism comes from self-disgust,
Yearning for a world one has surrendered.
No vision is complete but in repose,
Implicit in the steady gaze within.
Come, then, to know that good and evil must
In everyone with due respect be rendered,
So delicate their dance, as much in those
Not cynical as in those steeped in sin.
