Reflection Poem by Brian Dorn


Rating: 4.9

Who are you to cast these stones
As if your transgressions were unknown

So, this is what my speck has triggered
Your plank has left you so disfigured

What do you gain by judging me
Just whose reflection do you see

I could feel the tension in this one Brian, it helps to get it out, doesn't it? I especially liked the last part, isn't that called projection in pschyo babble? :) Peace, Aisha

Very well written, Brian. There are times when I find in anger, people often accuse others of true relections of the transgressions they themselves are responsible for...

Outstanding analysis, Brian. So many self appointed arbiters of good sit in the pews each weekend with their chins touching the ceiling joists. If they were to really read the passages in John and Matthew that you alluded to they would rip the subversive pages from their books.

Hi Brian, Everyone judges Brian, It's sad. It would be a great world if people accepted people for who they are but it's not like that. Everyone is competitive and it can be cruel. Excellent poem. Great message.
