The Watcher, Margaret Mair, original art

There is a
Presence here.
We are over-looked.
We are watched
And judged
For what we are
And not what we
Believe ourselves to be.
We are watched
And judged
Not with harshness
Not with kindness
Not with empathy
Nor respect
Nor love.
This watcher
Draws no conclusions
Accepts no arguments
Ignores all pleading.
This judge
Responds only
To what we do.
Forget vain argument, then.
We must act well
Or be
Punished.

Written by Margaret Mair
