Condemn

Reflections shown, while casting stones,
judgments are thrown, yours hide alone.
Unseen disguise, eyes in a veil,
swallow bad deeds, sighs are exhaled.

Looking outside, escape within,
choose not to see, deep-rooted sins.
Secure the cage, well kept inside,
hidden secrets, no one can find.

All concealed guilts, the heart knows well,
let the stones lay, where they once fell.
Absolve regrets, love and accept,
so conversations can connect.

Give empathy a love filled space,
real understanding is embraced.
Pure clarity helps souls unite,
perceptions fall with true insight.

– Grace Y. Estevez – Reddy

  3. A powerful emotional journey. Your line:
    “Give empathy a love filled space,” I feel speaks of forgiveness and reconciliation. Always a good place to start.
    Well penned, Grace.
