 Prophecy and Poetry

I can only see in others
The traits I myself possess
My children, friends and brothers
Their my teachers...they're my test

If I do not like who someone is
The finger points back at me
I'm not at peace with that part of myself
That part...I don't want to see

I then ask my God for courage
To face my darker side
Become aware, repent and share
No longer run or hide

I'm forever grateful for this insight I'm aware
It will forever change my life
So with others I want to share

We can only see in others
Traits we ourselves possess
Our children, friends and brothers
They're our teachers...they're our test

"Judge not, that ye be not judged.

For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?" Matthew 7:1-3
