Reflections show
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
