Don't Judge Me

Don't Judge Me

A Poem by Vidya Bacchus
"

Different does not mean that you are less than anyone else.

"
                                            Don't Judge Me                          


I am that little boy,
Who has the world on his shoulders,
I am that little girl,
Dreaming of the day when she'll  get older,
I am that old man who fought for his country,
And now back home he's always running on empty.

Life has been unkind,
And people are so mean,
Judging and laughing,
Inflicting wounds that bleed unseen,
What is our true worth?
Aren't we all one day consigned to the dirt?

So don't laugh at me,
Don't make me cry,
One day we'll all be the same,
Facing our maker whatever his name,
So don't mock me as being weak,
Accept me for being unique.

If people would be more tolerant of each other instead of mocking and jeering at each other for being different.It would be a better world.

Thank you muchly Enayet you are very kind :)
God I so agree with you here, the message is so powerful and something that everybody should freaking listen to! If people just minded their own business and let others get on with it everything would be a little better and the world would hopefully begin to change -- we can hope, right? I see so many kids at my work who are struggling because of comments they have received, breaks my heart.

Nice poem with a really great message! You've really outdone yourself here. I love the first stanza, especially the opening. It's childish, innocent, and sweet, reminding the reader of the child in everyone. I love it! :)
