Honor

24 Oct

Where does honor lie?

In unthinking obedience, obeying the will of another to whom one has been called to serve?

Or in that complicated game where white and black have blended to grey and shades can only be distinguished by the measure of one’s mental contrast formed and reformed by one’s experiences and upbringing?

Where does Honor lie?

Does one dare to tread that thin and curving line solely on the basis of one’s own judgement?

Does one dare to blindly follow where another leads along that swiftly eroding path?

Where does Honor lie?

Can one afford to walk two paths?

One foot led by another and one by one’s own conscience until in the end they cannot be simultaneously maintained and one falls to the blessed relief of death?

Where does your Honor lie?

    Thank you very much, Tia. You are too kind in your praise, but I do appreciate your comments. The question of honor is a very difficult concept that I do not think most people appreciate.
