before you judge

before you judge 

before you point and laugh 

before you mock someone think about this

what do you really know about them 

that boy with the bruises on his legs he gets abused at home

that girl whos hair is always a mess doesnt have a home

the kid in the corner  who always wear sweatpants got raped  a few months ago

that woman crying in the store doesnt have money to take her kids food 

that guy who stands outside the company staring into space doesnt have a job

the old man  in the church screaming for his wife has dementia 

the elderly lady whos maybe a little too pushy lost her husband two months ago

so before you judge think about what they might be going through

This poem is about: 
Me
My community
My country
Our world
