    When I looked in her face, I knew.
    I knew what I didn’t want to believe.
    As we stood looking at each other
    looking for the same reason to leave.

    I knew from the her unmade face
    where she’d been, what she’d done.
    I knew her words couldn’t breathe
    and her consolation would be none.

    Her breasts heaved deep and I knew
    the foolish misery she felt coming inside
    in realization that it wasn’t worth it.
    I knew because I stood on that side.

    Can We Throw a Stone?

    if we haven't sinned, we should be the first to cast a stone--Ra

    In that moment

    in that moment when we realize that we are less than perfect is the first step toward true growth and forgiveness--Ra

    many times when we want to accuse others, we must look at ourselves to see if we might be guilty of the same thing.

    hard!

    it's hard to throw that rock when we know we have done the same o worse--I've had to drop quite a few--still, we want to throw it so bad--oooh--but we have to think about it--hope all ends well--Ra
