Teshuva - a poem

 When the winds of change begin to blow away
The old year's foibles, bad habits ingrained
Are scrubbed vigorously down to the bone
Where and when are seeds of repentance sown
Is not for earthly judges to gauge how stained
The souls and deeds of others may be, but to pray
For their own deeds that need forgiveness.
To judge other less, for how you see best
Is what you need to understand more
Than how rich or how poor
The harvest of friends and foes alike.
Before you tell others they need a psych
Fix your own mental health issues and do not
Create issues for others who might not be
As lucky as you, before G-D
We stand equal
If not in this world
Then then the next.
