"Don't Judge" - An Inspirational Poem for Saturday, September 29th

Don't Judge


Pray, don’t find fault with the man who limps
Or stumbles along the road
Unless you have worn the shoes he wears
Or struggled beneath the load
There may be tacks in his shoes that hurt
Though hidden away from view
For the burden he bears placed upon your back Might cause you to stumble too


Don’t be harsh with the man who sins
Or pelt with words or stones
Unless you are sure, yes doubly sure
That you have no sins of your own
For you know perhaps that the tempter’s voice
Should whisper soft to you
As it did to him when he went astray
And would cause you to stagger too

Don’t sneer at the man who’s down today
Unless you have felt the blow
That caused his fall, or felt the shame
That only the fallen know
You may be strong, but still the blows
That were his, if dealt to you
In the self same way, at the self same time
Might cause you to stagger too
