THOU SHALL NOT JUDGE

This one placard
Has been burned and buried
Resurrected with skins
And burned again
In the circle of the world

This one thing
Is what people use to
Justify their actions
In weathering seasons
Flooding the roots
Of their house

This one thing
They pull out to
Walk away from correction
From the lips of the truth
As they have found a fake evidence
Imprinted in the foot
Of their walk way

This one thing
Has made people timid
Like a sleeping snail
In the face of admonishing
A brother who has lost its way
In the thick forest

Hmm…

Thou shall not judge
Has been painted
A black picture
In the clear light
Of the truth
For every action of ours
That is overgrown with weeds
Ought to be prune out
With love and mercy
Together with the gardener
Whom we live together
In the same community

Thou shall truly Judge
Our actions wrought wrong
In truth, love and mercy
For humanity’s sake
