Is there
A limit to
The human greed?
You ask, and yet
You desire the answer

The title means "hypocrisy". People are often very quick to criticize others, but fail to see the same flaws they despise... in themselves.

(This one I didn't translate to English line by line, because of the structure of Japanese grammar. So the first three lines are translated as whole and the translation is divided into three lines again. I think I might start doing so in my future Tanka.)

I made a deviantArt account because I wanted to share my (very) amateur tanka poems with other users and get some opinions on it. I thought it's a good way to express my feelings and commit my personal thoughts which I don't expose to even my closest of friends to "paper". Constructive criticism, especially about my Japanese is very welcome, for I'm still learning the language.

Maybe one day... :) If you're still learning Japanese you'll surely be able to write them, eventually :)
