So Quick

Updated on February 12, 2013

Don't be so quick to pass judgement

Never judge a book by it's cover

I've heard that saying since I was a little girl

Now I see it needs to be said to the whole world

Just because it looks a certain way

That doesn't mean those traits are here to stay

First impressions do mean a lot

But they also depend on the heart

Reach into your heart then tell me what you see

Now that it's not just your thoughts that are set on me.

Maybe things aren't the way you think

Maybe I've had a hard day or week

Maybe my struggle comes from a broken home, where I sit all alone

Maybe you don't know my story at all

So you just continue to judge me...

Please don't make that call

For on the inside I am very unique

So why don't you take time to get to know me

      I like this poem! So, many people judge by the look instead of trying to get to know the real person.
