Glass Houses (standard:poetry, 120 words)
Author: Reid LaurenceAdded: Aug 08 2010Views/Reads: 1428/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
What happens when people who live in glass houses throw stones?

A place to live 

To throw rocks at 

And crash the glass 

We love to jeer at 

If you are one 

Who sees the err 

Then you must know 

And be the bearer 

Too pointed wit 

Does criticize 

But back it comes 

In greater size 

Can it be sport 

Does lead us to it? 

Or idle time 

To make us do it? 

Each crushing blow 

Will add indeed 

And further wreck 

A soul in need 

But pain is clear 

A part of life 

And those who bear it 

Surmount its strife 

A house of glass 

Surrounded in it 

A constant pelting 

Siege to win it 

But woe to those 

Who take your place 

To find the stones 

That won't erase
