Retrospective, Judgment

Yes, I see where my feelings flowed from 
Why I froze up and made that caustic comment 
There is a casual chain, links traced 
And I see the other sides, their legitimacy 
And yet, I retain a perspective 
A point of view that the reaction overflowed 
With a source undeterred 
Looking forward, I don't know 
But right now, I don't believe
