Examinations of our Minds

To those of us who judge
(unknowingly or by deliberation)
I say this

When judging others
We ourselves should exercise
Similar examinations
Of our own minds

That we miss not those faults we own

And yet ignore

When serpent like we hiss
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


They lie in us

The same as that we mock
In 'He'

Those faults of others

That of which we all do moan

All the time of those immortal words

Let him who has no sin
Cast first the stone
