Let The Judgement Go

We all make our judgments

Of both the young and the old

Of people in general

Before their story’s told


Sometimes we laugh

Sometimes we snare

Never really knowing

The load they must bare


The unfriendly store clerk

That never cracks a smile

Might have to walk to work

Mile after mile


That old homeless lady

Who you think doesn’t work

Had a house and some money

Stolen, by some stupid jerk


That person you scowl at

With the old dirty shoes

Might have had to make a decision

Of what to chose


Some nice fancy footwear

With a nice matching pouch

Or clothes for her baby

And to put food in its mouth


The cranky old man

Who lives next store

Lost his wife and his children

His life’s such a bore


We don’t really know

A person’s worth

If at first we condemn

And proceed to curse


Everyone has a path of their own

Some people know it

To others

It will be shown


It’s not our place

To make up the rules

Of someone else’s life

They get to choose


We’ve all had our triumphs

Our rights and our wrongs

That’s what makes life special

We all have our songs


So next time you judge

Before you really know

Just think of this poem

And let it all go

  1. Are you judging someone when you’ve not sorted your own issues? Who am I to judge?

  2. Exactly, who are we to judge!
