Does the End Justify the Means?


All outcomes are driven by desire,

Fueled by the intentions to succeed.


Not every result is created equal,

Due to the justice of the means.


Good versus evil battles for cause,

Deciding the value of success.


Vileness leads to an easier end,

Throwing out worthy principles.


Winning with virtue is harder,

Keeping integrity in progress.


If the journey is kept righteous,

The soul will earn a higher prize.
