I wish I could just stop judging,
Thinking that I know better,
That I am aware of something nobody else is
That the way I see Life is the only way to see it
I wish I could stop wishing
That others lived their lives according to my standards or ideals
I wish I could just see others’ lives and deeds
As a great opportunity to learn new ways
Or see things differently
But no, I am encapsulated in my own little prison
That does not allow much room for compassion or openness.
I wish I felt OK with myself and
I won’t have the need to judge anybody
in order to feel better about myself.
