You Will Be Judged


You'll be judged for being nice
You'll be judged for being rude
You'll be judged for being pretty
You'll be judged for being fat
You'll be Judged

You'll be judged for being black
You'll be judged for worshiping Allah
You'll be judged for being a women
You'll be judged for your wheelchair
You'll be judged

You'll be judged in being old
You'll be judged for being young
You'll be judged in being blond
You'll be judged for having brown eyes
You'll be judged

You'll be judged for being a jock
You'll be judged for being a geek
You'll be judged for being slow
You'll be judged for being fast
You'll be judged


You'll be judged by your clothes
You'll be judged in taste of shoes
You'll be judged by choice in friends
You'll be judged for not having friends
You'll be judged

You'll be judge for being weird
You'll be judged in liking sardines
You'll be judged for being awkward
You'll be judged as acting wild
You'll be judged

You'll be judged for showing apathy
You'll be judged for your philosophy
You'll be judged for too many teeth
You'll be judged for having big ears
You'll be judged

You'll be judged for getting attention
You'll be judged for staying silent
You'll be judged as an up starter
You'll be judged for toeing the line
You'll be judged


You'll be judged for this you'll be judged for that
But most of all you'll be judged for jack squat
And in this game of life where everyone's a loser
You'll be judged for trying to live by your own terms
Surviving the struggle and coming out as a winner

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Very simplistic I admit, there's no real value in the verse a five year old could come up with a more thematically stronger message, but it's something I feel. so there: P

    As I've said many times and it's literally become a motto I live by.
    People will love you for who you are and hate you for what you are not and....
    People will also hate you for who you are and love you for who you are not.

    You will be hated and loved no matter what you do so you might as well be real because the only person whose opinion really matters is you, of yourself, at the end of the day.
    Only you have to live with you.

    I get it a very simple idea that speaks volumes so even though a 5 year old could come up with it anybody and everybody could get it and a universal message like this should never be overlooked because it speaks to all of us.

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
