My Glass House – Written December 2009 (Aged 34)

My Glass House

my glass house
appears to attract a lot of stones
i hear them,
i hear the sound –
of stone upon glass
i look out and watch those –
who are throwing the stones
i hear them,
as their comments pass
my glass house
with its glass walls
i have to admit,
i have found it hard to throw back
because the walls contain my past
and problems are stacked
i know i could change it all
and just just change tack
but then,
i do seem to receive a lot of stones
my glass house,
how hypocritically the stones are thrown
