For the very thngs we have done ourselves we will tar, feather and ride our neighbors out of town on a rail.                                                                                                                                  Seems to me the most excercise some people get is from jumping to conclusions about other people.

 

We oft expect of others,
In most given situations,
What we ourselves would do,
For it's our inclination,

To think that we are all the same,
So we think they would do,
The same as we if we should find,
Ourselves in those same shoes;

So when we suspect another,
Of some skullduggery,
Or we look down on someone,
And think debauchery,

Because they made in innocence,
A picturesque remark,
That we perhaps misunderstood,
And decided to embark,

On a mental journey,
To the land of fantasy,
Imagining the things they did,
And we begin romancing,

Evil thoughts within our minds,
That have no ground at all,
except within our fertile mind,
Where Satan has a ball.

Hi Judy, Missed this very deserved honored POTD. A wonderful write and a great read and also, very true as I think at times everyone is guilty of thinking that others should think like we do, and react to situations as we do, we are all unique individuals. Poetry hugs, Jennifer.

Judy this is actually the irony of the human mentality, because we reason differently and understands things differently too. Good presentation of human mental approaches. Congratulations Judy on your POTD..

One should never place themselves in the shoes of another- unless they have walked the same path. There are many in the world, passing judgement, before reading the entire book. Congratulations Judy, on Poem of the Day. ~ Brandy

Gossips and judgements are great failings. Unfortunately they exist. Quite an argumentative poem, Judy. Hope all is well with you. God bless.

It is so true. Many are so fast to judge others without knowing any facts of why! When someone is rude or mean in front of my granddaughters, I tell them they must be having a really bad day which they accept. Sometimes they will tell me, I am having a bad day Grammy! So cute. I like it when they let me know how they are feeling. Loved your poem! : ) xxoo
