Another poem. I hope you like it. Just some things I had been thinking about and decided to put them down.
Before you unleash
Your threats and invectives
Your taunts and snide remarks
Your insults and character slices
Before you point
At my failings and deficiencies
At my values and opinions
At my idiosyncrasies and habits
Before you rail
About my choices and comments
About my abilities or lack thereof
About my current situation or anything about me—
Take a look in the mirror.
Search your mind, soul and psyche.
Focus on your own imperfections, cracks and vulnerabilities.
My faults, shortcomings and flaws belong to me.
They are for me to work on, not for you to criticize.
Far too much time is spent tearing people down.
For once, lift them up.
Written about a recent situation I have had to deal with…
