Sometimes What I Think Of Others - Poem by Francis Duggan

Sometimes what we think of others a distortion of mind
For if you only look for flaws then flaws you will find
Sometimes our eyes only tell us what they want us to see
That's how 'tis with some and that's how 'tis with me
Of being guilty of such I know I'm not alone
Let the one without sin come and cast the first stone
A justice of the law court for passing judgements receive a huge salary
That's part of his or her job description would you not agree?
Just because you do not like one doesn't mean in words you should put that person down
Since she or he too has to live in the town
Live and let live are wise words worthy of recall
And there is such a thing as a fair go for all
And most of us can be judgemental in our own way
Do you not agree that's a fair thing to say?
