Let he who is without
sin – pick the first stone
from the pile. Something sharp
sturdy heavy, so it stings
long after it has been thrown –
so it reminds all for a while.
That in this life, upon
this land, we walk the thinnest
line – traverse the path
of heaven, hell, whilst spending
our allotted time. And all good people
in their masses, care not
who you are, have no desire
To read your story – No inclination
to follow your star…
They do not care nor do they wish
to know, if you are kind or if you
are wise, if the light of love
shines in your eyes, it matters
not to them that truths your prize.
To them you but a face –
A face in a crowd they do not
see, a voice in a riot
they do not hear – a photograph
that’s not quite clear. And yet
they’ll act as judge, as jury.
In a heat beat they’ll condemn.
Tear your world apart.
Insist that you’re not of them.
And one by one they will bend down,
picking stones up off the floor …
forgetting in a heartbeat,
to judge another is sin for sure.
And as he/she casts the first stone
All of heaven holds its breath –
for the proof long been suspected dawns
Mankind of love – it is bereft.
