It's not my right


United States

It's not my right to judge,

Its not my right to judge someone's sexual preference

So what if a girl likes a girl or a guy likes a guy?

It's not my right to have an opinion on how they live their life.

If I'm their friend, mother, father or brother I still have no right,

As long as they wake up and look in the mirror and like themselves, who am I to judge?

Who am I to judge?

A 15 year old girl with a pen and paper, born straight like the majority.

But the world is an amazing place since we have a minority,

which changes up our thoughts and ideas from time to time,

To just keep things interesting.

Do I support the LGBTQ and so on community?

You have no reason to ask that question really,

Because in my opinion, it's not your right to ask.

It's not your right to ask someone what they do behind closed doors just because you're curious.

No one has a right to judge since it's not my life and it's not my love.

So why should I judge?

So I can be friends with the cool kids and use slurs like the rest of them?

For what? So that I can feel good about myself and feel superior to my fellow brothers and sisters?

That makes no sense. I'm comfortable with who I am, what I like and whom I will love,

So why should I judge?

If someone wants to be proud and happy about themselves,

There is no reason that anyone shouldn't be able to ,

So why do you judge? Not you society,

Why does society judge?

I guess they are afraid of everyone being on the same playing field,

Someone has to be on top,

Whether that be kings and queens, government or otherwise,

We are told that we are meant to criticize.

But what if I don't want to, criticize that is,

 to judge someone because they want to feel comfortable in their own skin.

I guess In our world that is deemed a sin, to believe that I have no right to judge someone that isn't me.

Doesn't that sound like a little weird way to be?

Believing that your opinion should change other's lives?

Sorry, but being who I am, I do not subscribe.
