Common Judge

These human hands have potential,
To ignite, incite, induce,
Those polar feelings we love to find,
Like love's unlikely truce.
These human eyes have always pierced,
The soul, the sin, the sane,
And now we wear a judges garb,
Judge the guilty and the vain.

This is so very true. It seems that in every stage in life we have to choose who fits us more, who are we closest to, who shares the closets values, and it seems at times we have to judge others in this life just to get by. This is very well written. Great job!

Wow! I generally love the idea for this piece in the first place, but the way it flows and expresses it so beautifully captivated me. It's true how we all judge what people are capable of and such. Great work!

Though it is short, it is so true! You took the everyday struggle of people being judged and made it into a poem. Exceptional:) 5/5 stars
