You Don't Know Me

You Don't Know Me

A Poem by Chelle
"

A poem that focuses on the hardship of false judgment and labeling.

"

You don’t know me.

Those words you throw,

let loose off your tongue

so easily

have no relation 

to who I am.

So why do you

plaster

my name onto these

wretched labels

that don’t describe me?

Why do you

judge

a person whom you have

rarely to never

even bothered to

speak with?

Since when am I that name?

Since when have I done those things?

And why do you go

out of your way

to make someone

you don’t know

feel so worthless?

This is beautifully written, I love how it flows so easily, and can relate to the poems content. You have written down the nature of abuse, and the poem really speaks to me. If only people read our poetry and realised that words do hurt! Keep it up, it's brilliant!
