Roger Bussey


As Charmaine grew
doing as she pleased,
calm in the belief
that’s as it should be.

She did not comprehend
how others could decide,
how it was proper
for her to behave.

She lived in her world
behind her shadowed face,
for no one had ever
entered, her secret world.

No amount of force
could part those doors,
her hound-dog eyes
a testimony to her thoughts.

Imperfect, Judgemental, Human

The Tony Burgess Blog

I am not perfect. Sometimes I’m judgemental, who isn’t? Being a human being comes with flaws and imperfections. We are all broken people in some form or fashion. People are just trying to make sense of it all and we do get things wrong but sometimes we call things like we see them. There are good people who are cranky and yes judgy.

God hear our prayers asking for wisdom to know better and to have abundant forgiveness.

Like reading, ‘riting and ‘rithmetic!

squinting from setting sun.
