Treasure Island

>Starr Williams<

(Midnight on July 31,1991 / Spring Branch> TEXAS :))

DO NOT JUDGE


Do not judge a brother,
Who stumbles on the path.
Do you know the weight of his burden?
Or the weight of a painful past?

If that burden was placed on your own back,
You may last a minute, little longer.
Remember a heavy burden is given,
to those who’s backs are STRONGER.

    Perfectly said, I don't say that very often, this is something that can have a real and possitive affect on others, I am amazed at how much wisdom is displayed in this one, I would like to see it written in stone and placed on every hill and mountain summit
    Beautiful, just beautiful

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
