I am nothing more than a hypocrite

who cannot take his own advice.

Quick to correct a stranger’s wrong

but quick to excuse when mine.

It does not matter what mistake I’ve made,

whether it be big or small.

I will surely find a valid excuse

to justify them each and all.

“It’s not my fault!” I always plea,

before pointing out reasons why.

Dispersing the blame on those around me,

in a desperate attempt to survive.

But as soon as another stumbles and falls,

I’m always first on the scene.

Showing them right where they went wrong,

“I’d never make that mistake!” I scream!

    I wrote this one a while back but it’s very relevant to some recent events. Just a reminder to pull the plank out of your own eye before you point out the spec in another’s.
