Who are You to Say. . .

Post by Graeme » Sun Apr 22, 2007 4:24 pm

Who are You to Say. . .

You ride a hot air balloon
through life.
High among the clouds
you look down at me,
tiny worker ant
scurrying around.
With a lord’s detachment,
you judge me
without ever
sharing the experiences
or walking the path
that has made me
who I am.
This above all to thine own self be true.

Aye....I feel the eyes of one who is a self righteous judge. I feel strength in your words Graeme. I agree....put that self righteous judge on the ant path; then let him/her declare his/her righteousness.

Yes...to judge is easy, to understand is a completely different story!
You have to walk a mile in someones shoes to understand them better and still you could never know all the ins and outs about them. It's best to never judge...and to follow the phylosophy of " judge not and you will not be judged"
I like your words, they are full of truth...and I enjoyed reading your write!
Money don't make me so broke can't break me.
