Walk Before You Judge

by Live WeLL   Jun 22, 2007

She' s quiet and she keeps to herself
She must not care about anyone else.

His hair is colored and spiked up tall
He could never be the type to like baseball.

Her skirt is short and hair is blonde
She must not be a quick one to respond.

His clothes are baggy and he likes rap
He probably can' t find his own city on a map.

She wears glasses and enjoys reading books
She can' t possibly have good looks.

He has never been on a date
He can' t possibly, in any way , be straight.

Just let them be and let them be them
" There are reasons why I am what I am ."

She' s quiet because she has nothing to say
His hair is spiked for something different that day.

Her skirt is short but she gets straight A' s
His music gets him through the days.

She wears the glasses because they help her see
And he' s dating a girl, so pretty, Marie.

By looks alone you can' t tell a thing
What matters is what' s deep within.

Before judging them just by style
Take their shoes and walk a mile.

    I love this poem so much. My favorite lines would have to be
    "By looks alone you can't tell a thing
    what matters is what's deep within" and "Before judging them just by style, Take their shoes and walk a mile" because they are so true.

    WOWWWW!!!!! I really like this poem so very much and I am sometimes guilty of judging a person by the way they look. You have made some really important points. You are an excellent poet and you have a very distinct way about getting your point across. Keep up the good work.
