If I Were to Judge My Fellow Man

M. Fennell

 

If I were to judge my fellow man, I would:

 

Criticize a man

Not for his uncertainty of the truth

but for his unwillingness to pursue it

Not for having fear

but for lacking courage

Not for dreaming

but for giving up on the dream

Not for failing to achieve

but for failing to try

 

Blame a man

Not for his circumstances

but for his apathy

Not for his limitations

but for his cynicism

Not for running into obstacles

but for having obstacles run over him

 

Value a man

Not for the size of his muscles

but for the size of his heart

Not for the strength of his grip

but for the strength of his spirit

Not for how many he has conquered

but for how many he has loved
