My Hill


Saw someone

struggling up.

Watched them

try to make their way.


if I would do it


Didn’t stop to think

what criticizing them

was costing me.

Time I might

have spent

climbing my own way.

Lord knows,

I have a long way

to go.

I’m not too proud

to say

I’ve made mistakes,

like watching others

when I should

be climbing.
