Beams And Splinters

More clear sighted that the eagle
Piercing eyes that can see others
Giving correction upon their person
Casting self righteousness on a brother

Ready to find fault on a falling friend
Making oneself both judge and jury
Trying to restore without seeing thyself
Results in a backlash of loathsome fury

Forgive the beam in me and not be aware
A heartbreaking place of soul and heart
Not paying heed to faults in ourselves
When others could see them, from start

Beams and splinters a lesson learned
Judge my own acts and sin to reform
Letting myself be found above reproach
Living Jesus, committed safe and warm
