Why Judge Me?

whyjudgeme

"Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."- Matthew 7:1-2


Why judge me for my dark skin

when I have done you no sin


Why judge me for my coarse hair

when all I have done is care


Why judge me for my small eyes

when I have only been nice


Why judge me for my flat nose

when I've tried not to impose


Why judge me for my wide mouth

when I've been honest no doubt


Why judge me for my full lips

when I don't do dirty tricks


Why judge me for my gap teeth

when I give you space to breathe


Why judge me for my big breasts

when I wish you to be blessed


Why judge me for my large waist

when I don't judge you in haste


Why judge me for my wide hips

when good words come from my lips


Why judge me for my big butt

when I help no matter what


Why judge me for my rough hands

when all hardships I withstand


Why judge me for my bowled legs

when I can be a good friend


Why judge me for my rough heels

when you don't know my ordeals


Why judge my obesity

when we can live peacefully


Do not judge by what you see

not until you have known me


And even if we differ

let’s be brothers and sisters


We can argue or agree

and agree to disagree


No need to be judgemental

Kindness is fundamental


Try to be understanding

who knows it'll be life-changing


So if you can show kindness

Go ahead, spread happiness



“Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.” - Dalai Lama

“Be kind, don’t judge, and have respect for others. If we can all do this, the world would be a better place. The point is to teach this to the next generation.” - Jasmine Guinness

What a great message! Those who have subdued treating other people poorly they know that it doesn't degrade you it degrades them.

I hope you have a great night!

I really support this cause. We are too quick to be judgemental. Beautifully written.

What a wonderful message in this poem. If only people didn’t judge for all those things. We should never judge from appearances. We need to get to know each other. Nice work Harriet.
