Only Shards Hanging

The weight of our own sin
only shards hanging
after the stones
have been thrown in our glass houses
how little we think
when we are judging others
the same test we would fail
if the light were shined
if the attention was cast
on our own failings
the costs of hypocrisy
falling like glass
shards only remaining
blood on the ground

Matthew 7:1-5
Judging others
John 8:1-11
Woman caught in adultery
John 8:7
You who are without sin cast the first stone
Luke 18:9-14
Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector
story on Rachel Maddow show
May 17, 2011
on right-wing politicians
railing on the subject of family values
and yet proving they too have
feet made of clay
