>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
