You might think that you know me

But you don’t

You formulate your biased opinion

Based on your own life experiences

You judge me

Because it’s impossible not to

Decide whether or not you like someone

Free from your own personal viewpoint

You might think that you know me

But you don’t

I try to be kind with my words

I am a compassionate human being

I enjoy discussion

I believe in diversity

I like to be respectful

I don’t mind if you have a different opinion or viewpoint

But when you become personally disrespectful

I have a problem with that

You might think that you know me

But you don’t

Once my trust in you is broken

We’re done

It’s difficult enough to build trust in the first place

So if you betray me

You’ve lost me forever

That’s not my fault

You should have thought about how I might feel

Before you chose to do it

You might think that you know me

But you don’t

I don’t have time to waste on you

Especially when you don’t care about my feelings

Or myself as a person

So I’m just going to move on

You might think that you know me

But you don’t

Guess what?

You just inspired my newest poem

After more than a year of writer’s block

Be proud of yourself

Just remember

You might think that you know me

But you don’t

Judgment

She stares at the page

Dumbfounded in disbelief

 

Really?

 

Well if you want to think that way

Fine

People are entitled to their own opinions

 

But when the other person turns around

And treats her like a terrible person

Because she thought her thoughts

Defending her opinion

That makes it all the more confusing

 

People judge people

It’s natural and unfortunate

But just because we think a certain way

Making efforts to understand both sides

Not trying to be rude or offensive

Doesn’t mean we are judgmental

 

Wipe that smirk off your face

You are not being magnanimous

In your little farewell

 

It doesn’t matter how old you are

Or how many children you have

 

Twisting words around

Cleverly masking poisonous intent

In a cloak of sweet words

Won’t hide your underlying message

 

I see through you

 

Sorry it ended this way

But good riddance

 

condescending
