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.

Vidya..This poem is for those who care and people who don't they will not care at all no matter how strongly your words come out. For them its just a fun and playtime. It is a hard learned fact in my life that it is a wastage of time to earn goodwill of people who think no good of you. At best they can poison your mind and rob you off all the beauty you have in you. It is a battle and there is only one revenge...Success.

Thank you Avi.Some people will never change.
yes, one day we will all be consigned to dirt...
we are better than no one when we are born, and we will die the same.

Aww thank you chica.Who wants to be the same as everyone else.Not you and I for damn sure ;-)
Brilliant, both in message and in form...not much I can say really, it's all in the poem...I can only shake my head sadly and agree with you wholeheartedly...the examples you used are spot-on as well...many of these people are the ones who are the most prone to unjust judgements...great work Vidya :)

True that baby.Thank you.
such a strong, powerful message delivered very well, ma'am... I really enjoyed this.. unfortunately it is so true.. I remember being picked on when younger for things I couldn't control and am just now learning to accept my "uniqueness"... it does such profound, irreparable damage to our psyche and our soul...
