Onyew Bongus-Ikwue: Do not judge me

by Onyew Bongos-Ikwue

dont-judge-me

The Judge of the world accepted me

He who alone is qualified to cast stones

Refused to give even a censoring look

The Blameless One took all my blame

 

It has been a while I know

Since I opened up to you

But see,

The last time was rough

And kind of sad

So I clammed up again.

Do you think I don’t know?

All the wrong I’ve done?

Or I’m unaware, you think,

Of all the lies I’ve told?

How many people I’ve hurt?

Or how unclean I am?

 

But you see,

I come to you today,

Soul open wide,

Arms stretched out,

Eyes shut,

Eyes shut because I’m sure

You will reject me again

 

But before you turn,

Saying to yourself,

“What a horrible person”

Remind you of this let me.

 

The Judge of the world accepted me

He who alone is qualified to cast stones

Refused to give even a censoring look

The Blameless One took all my blame

The Holy one said, “Come as you are”

The Righteous One said,

“You are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus”

 

 

So if your Judge says to judge not

Can you accept me as I am?

Faults and all?

Sin and Grime?

Trusting that our Maker

Is working on me everyday?

 

Don’t Judge me, love

Don’t judge anyone

Because,

“Let he who is without sin cast the first stone!”

The only Sinless One refused to cast a stone at you

Why then?

Will you cast a stone at me?
