Examinations of our own Minds..

To those of us who judge
Unknowingly or by deliberation
I say this:
If judging others
We ourselves should exercise
Synchronous similar examinations
Of our own minds

That we miss not those faults we own
(And yet ignore)
When serpent like we hiss
Transfixed outside the others door


Enabling words
Formed deep in the abyss
To travel from our minds so blind
To scornful lips

Words born of arrogance
(Part of ourselves we do not see)
Insidious they lie in us
The same as that we mock in he (or she)

Those faults of others
That of which we all do moan
Forgetful all the time of those immortal words;

Let him who has no sin
Cast first the stone


Egal Bohen
