Judge Me Not

Since I am weak and you are strong,
Yes, please correct, but judge me not.
Shouting and yelling just bring fear,
Withdrawal, holding back with tears.
If you would gently point the way,
More likely will I blameless stay.
Because you know a better road,
Please kindly show me; do not goad.
I went about in ignorance;
How can a judged one recompense?
Unless I know your faithful love,
My sins it’s hard to rise above.

Silence

Help me understand.
I didn’t know
What my words might do to you.

I’m in a fantasy land;
Can’t understand
What my actions do to you.

Am I bereft
Of empathy?
Completely void
Of sympathy?

How did I know
What I could do,
Since silent were those
Who’d tell me true?

What does the silence mean?
It can be peaceful and serene.
It can be tense, it can be mean.

Let our silence be a calm,
A healing balm,
A space that will give birth to song.
