Glancing Blows

Posted By: Raleigh D. Meadow

Passing of judgment with the glance of an eye,
an intriguing conclusion indeed.
Visual information must be processed inside,
as the eye by itself cannot read.

Whoever is judging must use mind and heart,
a fact they willingly overlook.
They fail to acknowledge their subject's inner parts,
while their own affix cover to book.

They see many filled with ugliness, many who are inferior,
with stones of condescension they pelt.
Yet all of this ugliness projects from the interior,
and they actually view a person named "self".
