When you're criticizing others And are finding here and there
A fault or two to speak of Or a weakness you can't bear.
When you're blaming someone's weakness Or accusing some of self...
It's time that you went out To walk around yourself.
There are lots of human failures In the average of us all.
And lots of grave shortcomings In the short ones and the tall.
But when we think of evils Men should lay upon the shelves,
It's time we all went out To take a walk around ourselves.
We need so often in this life This balancing of scales.
This seeing how much in us wins And how much in us fails.
But before you judge another Just to lay him on the shelf
It would be a splendid plan To take a walk around yourself.
