Who Am I To Cast The First Stone - Poem by David Harris

Every life will have its troubles
that reap the stones of scorn.
No one is perfect,
least of all myself alone.
Therefore, onto others,
who am I to cast the first stone.

    excellent write David, a message we all need to be reminded of.....another way that my Mom always said was..'People who Live In Glass Houses Shouldn't Throw Stones.' So few do as you say here so it's nice to see you put it forth..
