Justifying My Judgements

Courtesy: mrtees.com

Standing here I judge the image you portray

Letting my prejudices, hurts and jealousies get in the way,

Choosing to believe I have you all worked out

Putting you in a box, sure there can be no doubt

That this image I’ve constructed is so exactly you

Justifying my attitude in all I think, say and do.

 

Standing here I judge the image I portray

Knowing my inside and out are like night and day,

Hoping, praying you don’t work it all out

That I’m not at all like this fancy facade I tout.

Hoping you believe this image I’ve constructed is true as you see

Justifying hiding from your judgement the inner, the real me.

 

Standing here I judge the images we portray

Knowing my justified judgements aren’t really okay.

How can I believe you are exactly what I see

When I work so hard to hide the real me.

Courage trumps judgement to look beyond the chosen face

Accepting the truth behind both images with grace.

 

Standing here I judge the images we portray

For courage and love have led the way

No more masks, faces or facades to tout

What you see is the real me inside and out.

I look at you knowing the image is just part

Of you, the person, the story, God’s work of art.
