JUDGING

It’s funny how quick we are to judge, how fast we point fingers.
It’s something about man that I have never understood. How we are quick to condemn and damn people for even the slightest ‘bad’ and somehow forget their tonnes of good.

We sing praises in quick hushed tones when people do good, we feign happiness and joy. But in the depths of our hearts, we are waiting for them to do even the slightest wrong…and if that happens, it becomes our greatest song.

We sing aloud of these wrongs, making sure nobody ever forgets. Using another person’s wrongs as a means to forget our own wrongs, our regrets.

But when did we become so cruel? Please tell me, I would love to know, that we would rejoice in another’s wrongs, where did our empathy go?

And who taught us to be so selfish?
To think only of ourselves.
How did we come to care for others less and less?

It’s funny how quick we are to judge, how fast we point fingers.

But even though we magnify another’s wrongs,
our regrets still linger.
For tearing another apart is not the way to heal.
Crushing another’s peace and joy, will just leave you emptier still.
