Before you criticise,
remove the log in your own eyes.
My best decisions may seem unwise
but yours may be dross in disguise.
Before you raise alarm amiss,
Rid your good points of paralysis
Because I won’t let your lame analysis
Make me plunder my inner bliss…
Before your words encroach…
Why not try a different approach
Instead or being a source of reproach
Just learn to be a silent coach…
If you have high mental strength,
Think twice and take a deep breath,
You too can be the salt of the earth…
Bring healing and not emotional death.
