And The Stones Tumbled.

Easy to condemn,

Harder to forgive.

To ridicule others, effortless.

To praise, harder than meteorite. 

He who is without ought, He said,

the first stone to cast.

Alas, none the courage had,

to cast the stone first.

For none there be without fault.

Yet, they be fault finding!

At last all their stones tumbled,

humbled as their haughty bearers.

What a sight glorious when

all their stones tumbled,

their bearers humbled!

Thank you Sire, for lessons 

so apt, that my future assured.

No matter how filthy, how soiled.

A home for me to find in your

bossom so righteous; that I,

my dirty self, is made whole;

and made acceptable that no

haughty spirit can me torment!

Stones have tumbled indeed.
(Inspired by Jn. 8: 1-11)
