I have no problem with religions other then the fact my beliefs are my own and should not be infringed upon in a public site...





My Soul Is Not Yours To Judge



Don't judge my soul by my writing

Let the man judge who's mercy's known

He has the training and the knowledge

Please leave it to him and him alone



If you want to judge...



Judge my rhyming, judge my spelling

Judge the words that i misused

Judge the sytax, judge the punctuation

Judge the common words I've abused



But please don't judge my soul...



We all must sit before the final judgement

Someday we'll all answer to our Lord above

You walk the path you've chosen for yourself

Let me walk my own way filled with love.

How could I not agree with the comments below? When we write it's so personal and we don't need people trying to restrain us just as maybe we are saying what is so heartfelt. This is truly heartfelt; this testament to our rights to feel and see and write about it all! Thanks so much, Felix! Love from Meredith

Excellent, Felix :) It's so hard for me to comment on poetry due to this very fact...or something similar of. We never know what inspired a poem, what the author felt in their soul...what they were feeling. Sometimes, we're so quick to jump in there and make our assumptions and our judgments in all aspects of life. I am with you, view our form, our words and count our syllables; but, don't judge our souls.

Spot on, Felix. Love and peace to you,

I fully agree that no one has the right to judge others, but in this world it is going to happen. If everyone would just look at what they are doing themselves they might not be so ready to judge others. You are right that only our maker has the right to judge us. Very well written. Karen

I agree. I wish people would stop "God blessing me" and just leave a review. ~ Sara

I think this this is one of your best, Felix. This so right on, that I have no words. I wish I had your knack. May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & (((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie

Wise words, wisely stated Felix my friend, let your work and the warmth it exudes be your voice, and fear not, I only picked up on a typo mate LOL, *sytax, syntax;-)

AMEN. Spot on, spot on, spot on! If people don't like what you write, lump 'em. :) Write for you, my dear, the heck with what people think. Refuse to be put in a box. Branch out and continue being the wonderful poet you are--you can write about anything and make it good! So there. :) I, for one, happen to love your words (and you) very much. :)

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

EXCELLENT write!

Indeed, dear Pops, and you lead by example of what it means to be loving, honest and full of integrity... to say nothing of the epitome of graciousness and respect. All of us would hope that we have open minds that listen and debate and enjoy the spiritual and intellectual interchange, perhaps; but for those of us who hold very tightly to issues of faith and doctrine, it is soooo very easy to overstep the mark and start to sound like a preacher. May we always be aware that our sights are too skewed by vast amounts of timber in our own lives, minds and thoughts to be able to pass comment on the careful woodland management in the lives of others. Enjoy your walk in the beautiful tropical rainforests that are all your own, Felix, and may they draw you equally towards whatever objective Truth exists for us ALL to find. Bless you - and gotta love that photo!! I wouldn't DARE comment on your syntax while you're fixing me with those piercing eyes!! :)) LOL Kate xx

Excellent wisdom poem! When I reached maturity, I took the position that if God gave us a choice, who are we to take it away from others! We do well to tend to our own souls....Eileen

That is correct judge not that ye be judged. On this site we all must take criticism to make our work sound better. I always give that and from time to time i tell people to write with expression and not impressions on how you went to college. This was an excellent form of written expression.

Oh, please send this to my brother, wouldja! (grin) Seriously, I wish everyone who feels they have the right to preach their beliefs at us would learn to comprehend every word here. We just need to keep saying it, and hope for someday. Thanks for this.

Great message, Felix! We should never judge one another on whom and what we choose to belief. As you said,"
You walk the path you've chosen for yourself,
Let me walk my own way filled with love."

Wonderful writing, Felex!
