There Were None

All have their battles dealing with life
All have their own personal strife
We have opinions of others, sometimes we won't budge
Each has his own faults, we've no right to judge

We preach about Jesus and all that He says
But don't follow His example, set in our ways
When we sit in judgment nobody wins
He suffered in silence and died for our sins

Mary Magdalene was sentence by man to be stoned
They said that by law her sins must be atoned
Jesus spoke to the crowd and when His speaking was done
Who was left to throw stones? My God there were none

Sometime's life's a blessing, sometimes it's a curse
By judging others we make our lives worse

    So much of what you say in metaphor has great meaning! Yet you and I know this is a society [the USA at least I can not speak for foriegn cultures] which refuses to take a moral stand on anything! Folks are killed in the street and no one even calls the cops OR the paramedics SO in some instances I think we could use a wee bit more JUDGEMENT perhaps we should judge ourselves first? Light & Love you old coot [yes you are older than me!..I think?}

    Vince, on my Soup bio I say my favorite quote is "Judge not, lest ye be judged." I think you summed up all the reasons why we see so many judgmental people. Only God is our judge. Excellent sonnet, my friend, and it's nice to see you posting again. Love, Carolyn

    So true Vince! Who are we to judge our fellow human beings?

    Yes. Life is a boomerang. What you toss out comes right back to you. Good advice, Vince. Love, daver

    Great sonnet with a strong message, Vince. It's in our human nature. I like the ending line, so true. Very nice. Ruben.
