Casting Stones

I carry in my pocket a simple reminder to me

A single stone; it is nothing special on its own

It bears the weight of truth that each of us in earnest

must embrace.

For if we would stop to think we all have made mistakes.

Before we hasten to judgment remember the stone we throw

May bear the weight of the sin we ourselves own.

So stop and think, what would you do if this stone was thrown at you?

    Hi there nice to meet you thanks for stopping by my writes! I think you have free verse here [blank verse has consistant meter, and wow is it hard to write, as well as no end rhyme] SUCH a valuable topic to write about! I enjoyed it! Light & Love

    I once threw a stone,hit a kid in the head. His dad got real angry, he wished I was dead. Just what was the reason we had our exchange. Looking back now, it all seems so strange. I feel really bad,he was younger than me. and then,years later,he passed away tragically.

    I'm forever saying how would you like it if it were done to you, I guess your saying the same thing, but in such a beautiful way. I guess this is one of those thing grandparent say / so,like tieing knotts in hankies to remind them of things. Really very good.
