Description of poem
-definition of judgement- The capacity to form an opinion by distinguishing and evaluating
I wrote this poem to raise a issue that I know affected me and may affect others. Judgement of people is a way of the world and I understand that forming judgement about the people around is natural as we all form opinions on people sometimes without even knowing them. I believe there is a thin line in which judgement of others or forming an opinion of someone can become diminishing to their character in a negative way, such as how they look or personal decision they have made for themselves but it’s pointless to expect that people don't make judgement like these all the time. However I feel that line is crossed when people feel they have the right to inexplicable place judgement or label others by telling them, or enforcing your opinion on them unnecessarily (e.g ghetto, chav, ugly, stupid while you aren’t god nothing can make you qualified enough to past these judgements on other and if you think you are perhaps you want take a look at yourself and ask yourself WHAT OTHERS MUST THINK OF YOU). for a while I allowed others judgement of me to effected in such a way that I try to change myself to please others but I soon realised those people don't have the right to impose their view on me and I hope this poem demonstrates that.
Judgement seem to be such a human trait
But humans are imperfect creatures
So should we be excused for placing our negative thoughts and judgement on anyone we choose?
Perhaps insecure with ourselves
Were always on the attack
Shooting out opinions as if they are facts
Starring eye they’re glaring
Glaring eyes they’re starring
Now they’re judging me
Now won’t you tell me what your judging eyes see?
Yet your perception could cross as deception
Deluded in your beliefs
You have past them on,
Now your judgement becomes my judgement of me
Your imperfect self
Somehow expects perfection in everyone else
In your own way you stand and play god
But you’re at a lost, and you must play the fool to
Because there is a real god and he will be judging you to
be careful with your judgements, because judgement day will come
And those judging eyes will be judging you to
