Everybody's out there trying to do the best they can.

“Over the years you get to see what a struggle life is for most people, how tough it is, how easy it is to be judgmental and criticise and stand outside of situations and impart your wisdom and judgment. But over the decades I’ve got more tolerant of people’s flaws and mistakes,” “Everybody makes a lot of them. When you’re younger you feel: ‘Hey, this person is evil’ or, ‘This person is a jerk’ or stupid or, ‘What’s wrong with them?’ Then you go through life and you think: ‘Well, it’s not so easy.’ There’s a lot of mystery and suffering and complication. Everybody’s out there trying to do the best they can. And it’s not such an easy business.”-Woody Allen

This quote by Woody Allen inspired me to write a short poem:

I am no angel,

I judge too

Naturally, but usually in my head

I'm judging you

I grow older, learn to judge less the key is to love more

I place myself in other people's shoes

Let empathy walk me through the door

I seek to see myself in others

And others in me

It's like a mirror, fragile and deceptive

We are reflections of what we see

Judging is easy

Love can be too

Look beyond the facade

Let the truth shine through
