“Do the right thing” 

Sounds simple enough. 

At such a young age,

We are taught that right and wrong 

Are as clear as black and white. 

But we got older, 

Experienced things, 

Heard things, 

Read things, 

And the line doesn’t always seem so clear anymore.  

A murky, gray area sprouted 

Between those once pristine black and white spaces.

So what now? 

How do we know what to do, 

When right and wrong are so muddled together

That we can’t even see the difference?
