Judgement

Judgement 

 

Judgement

the thing 13 year olds

endure everyday

 

Judgement 

the thing everyone is 

worried

about as they roam

the halls

thinking 

one million 

stares 

and glares 

already 

and i just got to school 

 

 

we shouldn’t have to

fear

people are judging us

as we are just trying

to go to class

 

 

judgement is when 

people take one look at you 

and think

WOW!

he is too short

she is too tall 

he is too fat 

she must be anorexic 

 

if that’s you

the judger 

STOP!

 

some people can barely go to class

because they are 

worried 

that people are judging 

every step they make 

what clothes they wear

how their hair looks

or how big they are

 

now should a 

13 year old

have to be worried 

about people 

judging 

their physical 

appearance

 

the answer is 

no

 

so stop judging her about

how her hair looks today 

 

stop judging him 

on whether his clothes

match or not

 

 

no one 

 

should have to give a crap 

in this world about 

what they look like  

or what they want to 

look like

just because others

will judge

them for it
