The Scales


The Scales

In this world
all is weighed
on the invisible scales

Clothes that I wear
Every word uttered
The thoughts shared

Political views
Hairstyle and color
Even my shoes

Everything I do/did
From what car I drive
To how I raise kids

My marriage woes
How much money
And where it goes

I have these to ask
Whose hand on that scale?
Taking me to task

Who are you to so judge?
Is your life spotless?
With out a smudge?

If so, let me see
May I touch
a so perfect Deity?

There is more for me to ask
to the hands on the scale
taking me to task

Don’t you have better things to do?
Then watching that needle move?
Back and forth to "good" or "bad"
What the heck does that needle prove?

One more thing before I end
God will be my Judge
On this I depend.

I wish more people around here had your/our outlook on things... it would be a much happier place!
