Judgment Passing

You can slice my name

With a steak knife,

Cutting it into pieces,

But don’t ever, EVER

Judge my situation.

You have never strolled

In my slippers and boots.

My pain and agony doesn’t negate

Anyone else’s suffering in the world.

I have never silenced you,

Dismissed you,

Ridiculed you,

When you told me about

Your heartaches,

Your tragedies,

Your suffering.

I’ll never look down on you

Because of what you went through.

Don’t look down on me

And don’t judge me.
