Personal Defeats

Personal Defeats

Center stage all of you
who have a part to play,
as it’s time to start your travel;
we are the judge and jury
and all performances begin and end
with the sound of our gavel.

We are not critical
of what you say
or how you say it;
actions are our concern —
your motives and intents
will decide the verdict.

Living is nothing more
than remembrances of yesterday
and anticipations of tomorrow;
in between are lessons in humility —
better this
than unrealistic grandeur
which often leads to sorrow.

We see good in what you do,
and we understand your defeats
and why you may feel a bit wilty,
but we are life and we know
you are only human
and for this —
we find you not guilty.
