The "You" and "Me" War!

This post made to --- > 

If I do a mistake I don't think twice.
If you do a mistake you are experienced and wise.
If I am used to something you call it a vice.
If you are used to something you say it is nice!

If I break a promise I am heartless and take you for granted.
If you break a promise you understand the situation and are sainted.
If I am judge-mental I probably don't know the world's way.
If you are judge-mental you know it all and hence you dare to say.

If you pass on an opinion you are true, frank and honest.
If I pass on an opinion I am rude, thoughtless and blankest.

For once If I were you, will you be me ?
For once if we shift our roles will we have a new way to see? 


If you cut jokes on others and mock them you love having fun.

If I cut jokes and laugh I am just not fair to that person. 
If you talk and talk and not listen to me, you have better things to speak.
If I talk and talk about me, my monologue is boring and may also reek!

If I shed tears uncontrollably, I am just being cynic and weak.
If you shed tears in fear and pain I should understand and you need no critique.
If you don't stay in touch and cannot talk to me you are just being busy.
If I have a reason for not talking to you, I am just acting and being lousy!

If you shut others mouth when you open yours you are speaking with heart.
If I try to open my mouth you think I talk with anything but heart and you retort!

For once If I were you, will you be me ?
For once if we shift our roles will we have a new way to see? 


PS: Feels good to write poems after so long :)

    Very thought provoking questions. In reality, on a serious note, no one wants to trade places with others.

  4. The tragedy of our lives. We justify our transgressions and complain bitterly when we are at the receiving end.

  8. Beautifully written, afshan! Simple and meaningful. I am bookmarking it so that whenever I fall into judgment mode, I will refer to it! Exposes the hypocrisy of each individual well.
