Title: The Mote and the Beam
Meter: 9 8 9 8 D
Topic: criticism, judgment, tolerance
It’s easy to magnify the mote
That we see in our neighbor’s eye
How easy it’s then to laugh and gloat
“I’m so glad that it is not I.”
But often our vision is impaired
By a lengthy and stubborn beam.
A state of things that must be repaired
So that things in perspective seem.
It’s easy to look about for sin
In order to take it away
Much harder to take a look within
And so these sins much longer stay.
Much better it is to be the change
You wish in the world to see
For you have the power to arrange
What kind of a person you’ll be.
