Growing Pains - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

true story
from the annuals
of family

disharmony

younger sister
screams
at older sister

she is
a stirring
bitch

some things
never change
perhaps

those who
constantly
perceive fault

within others
should examine
their heart

conscience
character
habits analyze

their own faults
within effect
of fly within

their own
ointment
it has

always intrigued
me how those
often least able

to run
their own
lives

are experts
on how everyone
else should

run theirs
devote
so much time

energy emotion
into trying
to remodel

others
the world
into

their
conceived
model

of a better society
while neglecting
to remodel improve

themselves
