Don’t Judge Me

By Edlyn Mason

Don’t judge me

You don’t know my story

Even if I enlightened you a little bit

Couldn’t walk a mile in my shoes because they’d never fit

Pause before you condemn my mistakes

It wasn’t up to you to determine the stakes

Beliefs can shape a twisted structure sans foundation

Walls painted in rumor, decorated with figments of limited imagination

Quit pretending you’re the skin beneath my mask

Truth be told you’re really not up to the task

If you glance at my face but avoid my eyes

You’ll never distinguish my truth from another’s lies

Go on and gather your distorted facts

Compliments of the usual blabbermouth hacks

Skimming the surface of my hurt

Will only feed your delusion of somehow having dirt

I’ve survived my wounds and I’m still standing

Exposing my scars will hardly improve your understanding

My cross I’ll never ask you to bear

I know better than to think you’d actually care

Pray for yourself, I’ll make my own confession

Last thing I need is your two-faced petition

  1. Walls painted in rumour, decorated with figments of limited imagination – I love, love the imagery of this verse. And the entire poem is so direct and bare about one’s flaws. A simple, beautifully well-written piece!
