Judge Me

Have you ever felt judged by someone that just doesn’t understand you, and you get tired of trying to explain yourself? Some people can be so infuriating, especially when they think they have you pegged before they even attempt a discussion.

At least it makes for some inspired poetry.

Judge Me

Feel free to judge me

From way on high

Up top that ivory tower

I’ve witnessed many times


Dispositions turning sour

Your words may carry weight

With some

But they’re feathers on my back

I’m so used to being judged


I struggle to fit in with the pack

If you make no effort to understand

Another point of view

Then why should I explain sincerely

Why I do the things I do?

If you’re hoping I’ll concede

To a stubborn ego


From down below

I can see you breathe

An air of superiority

If it’s all the same to you

I may expect

To cut you free


It’s not to say

I can’t confess

When I know I’m in the wrong

I seek to do no harm

I’ve just evolved to be



You could talk with me


The way, I hope, I’d talk to you


Don’t be surprised

If I just reject the words you spew

I’m not afraid

Of your masquerade

The way you make it

A dinner and a show

I judge the words

By the character

Of the one behind the row


Judge me




It doesn’t bother me

If I anger you

Maybe I’m doing something


You can’t appease them all


It’s illogical to feel contrite

I will be me

And you be you

Acting out of spite


The funny thing about feedback

Which I’m certain you will learn

The ones who speak

In words uncouth

Tend to take it in return

You can waste your time

Obsessed with those

With whom you disagree

And I will waste my time

Ignoring you

It’s my solemn
