I Don't Live In His Shoes

Though we go to the same pub and we drink the same brand of booze
I cannot judge him i don't live in his shoes
His life experiences are very different to mine
Though we drink the same beer and we both like red wine,
The flaws i see in him in my own self i see
And in him i see the reflection of me
What i dislike in him in my own self i despise
We do seem more alike than we wish to realize
I don't live in his shoes and on him i should not reflect
But only the wise with their words are circumspect
For our karma in life we all plant our own seed
Judge not and thou shalt not be judged are words we should all heed
I'm at the stage of life that i should be more wise
I don't live in his shoes yet him i criticize.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
