If your house was made of glass,
Transparent and refined,
And everyone could see right in,
Do you think that you would mind?
Would “keeping up with the Jones’s”
Be even more important then,
If people could see how well you lived
By the material things within?
Would you control more of your emotions,
Negative ones, such as rage and doubt,
If people could see your actions
When you let them all come out?
What if your anger towards
Your spouse and children were seen?
Do you think that your neighbors
Would still hold you in high esteem?
The perceptions we choose to be seen
Are those of an endless bias,
But the truth would surely come out,
If your house was made of glass.
So think before you act,
take a moment to ponder through
That the stones you throw at others
May come flying back at you.
