Criticism - Poem by Luwi Habte

The truth is half and reversal half
the futile and useless stuff
which pulls man on defensive
and makes him justify him self to strive

the dangerous action
it wounds man`s precious station
and hurts sense of importance
also arouses his resentment face

criticism is dangerous spark
which causes an explosion, pride killer`s park
never to be accepted
hence the creator will be hated

God him self sir does not propose to judge a man until the end of his days so why should we, you and I?

    An ‘even’ mind can only accept criticism and praise in similar way.
    Poet has enumerated nicely the dark zones of not accepting criticism as morale.
    Thanks for stirring my grey cells.

    A good subject which needs more work on the spelling and grammer. Do you mean 'Criticism'? ie Pertaining to censure.
    A worthy subject.
