Who Among Us

Who among us
believes he is unblemished?
Who among us
justifies our transgressions?
Who among us
wears a mask to hide their imperfections?
Who among us
tastes hate and not love?
Who among us
is proud of the scriptures we know?
Who among us
has followed the broad path
when the narrow seemed difficult?

If we identify with one affliction,
we possess all,
covered in stains of sin
and scars we see as ugly.
We hate, we judge, we seek revenge.
We are proud peacocks,
Pharisees in the midst,
standing at the entrance to the narrow road,
where the incline is steep
and the terrain is rocky,
struggling daily
to take one more step in the journey.
