Get Right Up!

A nagging pain that
tugs the conscience, belittle
with bad intentions

Form of truth, idle minds
making inroads but lacks pace
once over the hill

Prostrating, slender
in motion, hoping outright
salvation right through

Cut a suave figure
Head held high, bemoan the stink
Make a mark in life

Written for 3WordWednesday with words nagging, idle and pace and
for Chev's CARPE DIEM #85 with prompt - hill
