#throwbackpoem: Finger Pointers

~ Finger Pointers ~

By Deborah Ann

If we’re not to be,
finger pointers . . . .
then why are we still
reputation spoilers?

If we’re not to gossip,
or stab in the back
then why do we still
let our lips smack?

If our tongues,
we need to bite
then why are they still
in a rush to fight?

If our lips,
we need to restrain
they why do we still
lash out in disdain?

If we we’re to see past,
our own smugness . . .
our fingers would point
right back at us!

Psalm 34:13

“Keep thy tongue from evil,
and thy lips from speaking guile.”
