As you sit on the sidelines of my life blinded by what you perceive
And ignorant of all you do not know
You dare to pass your judgment, critical of the choices made
That have nothing to do with you.
When looking back on your life and decisions you have made
Can you sit there honestly, knowing all you know now
And say you never made mistakes?
As you sit on the sidelines of my life, blinded by the love you feel
And ignorant of all the critical errors, you dare add shame to the mix
As if it is suddenly your duty to lay waste with your verbal landmines
Look back at your own life, I dare you to peak
Take a look at all that was said and done, that caused such family strife
Would you like there to be fingers pointed
At a time when you felt your life was so bleak?
The lessons learned in this lifetime are earned by pain and joy as well
But please do not feign to sit there and judge my own personal hell
As if you know it or have seen firsthand
When all you have seen is the outer shell….
