Living in a blind spot

It is far, far easier
To see the faults of others
Much, much clearer
Than our own.
We are not as wise
As we think
And we are not surrounded
By so many fools as we advertise-
We are living in a blind spot
Where the grace we afford ourselves
Is too costly to share with others
And the wounds we inflict
Are infinitely and unequivocally smaller
And further from view
Than any wrongdoing of our own hand.
