Judging Ourselves

We dislike in others, reflections of

The dark shadows of our soul
We want to escape

Judging others

Criticizing, fault finding

In reality condemning ourselves

Unable to face the truth

Rejecting the reality we may find

Forgiving ourselves too easily

While transferring blame to the other

He did this to me! Look at what she did!

Its easier to get by this way, but not simpler

Truth doesn’t escape a knowing heart

Biding time, till we accept

That judging others is to judge ourselves

That one speaks home almost too uncomfortably. It would be good if one did not go on wanting to escape the next time too.

And it is a judgment on ourselves too. A poem strong and true.
