Description: A poem about judging people on the way they look
Donít Judge Me -------------------------------------------
Donít judge me by the way I look, some things you canít see
Like the thoughts and feelings, that dwell inside of me
The way I look has nothing to do with anything at all
Except to narrow minded people, whose brains are very small
Iím not as dumb as you think, open up your mind
If you take the time a lot of things youíll find
Tattoos and piercings are just out there for show
If you never take the time, you will never know
That things arenít always the way that they appear
But youíll never know that if you donít get near
That I am a gentle soul, with the best of intentions
Things like that are the things that no one ever mentions
I just have to be myself no matter what the price
If you canít accept that Iíll give you some advice
Just look past the outside look within to see
Thatís the only way youíll see the real me
Too many people are too damn quick to say
Oh he must be this or that because he looks that way
Remember judge not lest you be judged yourself
And thatís the kind of thing you canít place on a shelf.
Wow. I came here to thank you for your comment on After It's All Been Said, and was pulled in by Don't Judge Me.
I really like how you manage to be so conversational. Sometimes poems sound stilted, to get to the rhyme. Not yours.
Thank you for YOUR encouragement. It means even more when I see the calibur of your writing. Anna
I like this peom alot mainly becouse I can relate to it alot. I'm still in high school and people just see me as the girl that wears black and has piercings and they don't even give me a chance. This is a good poem mainly becouse there's alot of people out there like me that can probably relate to it...
