Do not make me the hate that vengeance derives,
For through loss of love, I have been reborn, remade.
If merely to salt the wound, then in honors praise,
Strike true and be sinless in the eyes of your suitor.
If not, Righteous One, your crimes would be equal to mine!
For you see, Lucks Chosen -- fate has deemed you undeserving of such torment.
Judge me not if inside your heart burns the same fire,
For our only difference, other than my action made,
Is that my fire has been fed logs far larger and flammable than any you contain.
Similar are we, separated only by a fork in lifes road.

Amen to what you said about looking through others eyes before judging...if everyone would do this, the world would be a better place to live...
"Judge not, least ye be judged..." We're suppose to leave the judging for the big guy anyway.....who are we to judge, when we are all created as equals...?? We are only checkers in this game ....OK - it's not often I preach....I'll shut up now...
