Reluctance

Tip-toe past restraint  
Seduced by another chance 
Dismal and dimly 
Creating reluctance
Drowning first instinct beneath

Cuts and bruises print
Warning signs as bandages 
A helping hand 
Creating reluctance 
Now Questioning first instinct 

Coded messages 
Markings behind deciphered 
Eagerly hoping 
Repudiate reluctance 
Past instinct channeled 

Restraint advising 
Karuna involving us 
Finally grasping 
Exterminated reluctance 
First instinct followed
