In viewing me, you cannot see the sum of all my parts;
Your eyes can only scan my skin, they can’t discern my heart.
For as the moon in mystery is shrouded from our gaze,
What we observe in others is but one nocturnal phase.
Keep this in mind if others show a less than stellar frame –
Character is more than what one action can proclaim.
As Mistress Moon evolves each night, her beauty ebbs and wanes,
We cannot judge our neighbour’s heart by what his face contains.
Well done. It reminds me of the expression that we judge others by their actions and ourselves by our motives.
How sadly true that is. I hope that this new awareness of this trait in myself will help me to make better judgements in the future…
So true. We are quick to jump to conclusions and judgements.
Yes. Unfortunate characteristic of humans. Sigh. Perhaps recognizing it is the first step to conquering it???
