To Judge Or To Be Judged - Poem by Hannah Shier

Labels.
They are a tricky thing.
What you may see may be totally different to someone else or to even that person's own self.
It's an inexact abomination.
It's an indefinite atrocity.
It's a thing that can ruin the whole of someone else's life -
all because of that one little word.
Be it:
Whore
Fag
Fat
Anorexic
Emo
Ret ard -
it really doesn't matter, in the end.
Because in that end, the labels will end up as R.I.P. on their head-stone.
