Sometimes a ‘cuss on lips
shoots straight out from the hips
perhaps even well meaning
only proves to show the carnal “exposed”
But Heaven knows…
That some who speak lovely
in fact do “ugly”
Cite Philippians 4:8
quoting the same
whilst unduly testing others unto shame
Would it not be preferable
to be honestly outwardly hated
by those who only pretend to be friends?
this side of glory
to what end?
the measuring sticks vary
no line is straight
sometimes favored by the short end
and by the long condemned
How can one measure what is right
without an accurate measure of wrong?
If this be a work in progress?
Then it’s not progressing very well
not well a’toll.
