Liars, Liars, Everyone

The good book sayeth that, least we judge
Before we comment and silently shrug
We should give the time to budge
For a little introspective hug
To see inside when we have been wrong
When our lies we dishonestly dug

Remembering when we were in error
Stumbling to make ourselves believe
Knowing the truth, and in terror
Fighting so that others wouldn’t perceive
That we are the deceitful bearer
Of the many times we have deceived

And in the light of that awareness
Any judgment that we may bestow
May be tempered by selfishness
And lighten our own very heavy load
To see through eyes with gentleness
Before we proclaim another a toad

About Barbara Blackcinder

I am a poet/writer with a need for words. There are so many out there that I haven't used yet. They define all reality and mine when you read those from me.
