Dear Judging Mind

Dear judging mind.
How dare you find
Fault in others.
How dare you lay blame,
Secretive aggression under cover.
Criminal at large.

Dear judging mind.
How dare you find
Fault in me.
How dare you point out
All the flawed things you see.
An uncomfortable barrage.

Dear judging mind.
How dare you find
Fault in yourself.
Target and arrow, your chances of escape
Are narrow.
Judge, jury and executioner,
You are guilty as charged.

I've decided,
All that being said.
(Against my Lawyer's advice, 
I hasten to add.)
That the next time I notice
That you’re in my head.
I’m not going to attack you.
I’m going to smile instead.

I know we’ve had our differences.
I know you can be a pain.
But if we keep on like this
It’s to nobody's gain.

So, let’s make a pact!
I’ll be civil when I spot you,
I’m not going to over-react.
And in exchange all you have to do
Is keep on being you.
Deal?

Maybe in time you’ll develop a kinder side
But as far as I’m concerned
I accept you.
