We judge people by appearance


We judge people by their appearance

And we do not even know them

Only because of stereotypes,

Some people made about them.

And often

When we see them, we try to avoid them

Just because some people judged they are defective and wicked

We hesitate to get to know them,

And know who they truly are.

And usually

We do not know the truth

But rely on other people’s opinion and judgments,

Without even knowing their beautiful inside

We avoid them! We deliberately do not want to get to know them.

But sometimes

People’s judgments do not fit their real personality

They ultimately are the most trustworthy and personable.
