Judgement

Judgement lies in children’s eyes,

Shouting, “You’re all lies!”

Their answer belies

Truth,

And so, with childish sighs,

They chant from vision pure and sacred

To harass with accusations

And bold instructions

Given in whispers.

I can not deny when as a youth

I measured every adult with my own holier-than-thou scale

Against ideal and pragmatic conscientious

Unerring but tall newly acquired

Values.

How else to see adults, morés, and my emerging self, than by seeking

Hypocracy in your behavior,

And ignoring it in mine.

So. Go on. Judge me if you will

And give voice to your findings that both of us may grow

By your analysis.

Children were but recently Angels,

So judgement comes naturally,

As does love.
