Don’t judge me


Don’t judge me by the colour of my skin,
Don’t judge me because I’m brown and not white,
Don’t judge me because of the way I look,
My heart is the same as yours,
The blood pumping through my veins is the same as a white and black persons,
My eyes as black as coal can see inside your soul,
I know when you see me, all you see is my colour,
My lips the shade of pink roses tremble when they see your look of disgust,
I walk in the night like a shadow, carrying the weight of the world on my shoulders,
Our paths cross, but to you I might as well be as white as a ghost as you fail to see me,
Don’t judge me, for you don’t know what lies in my heart
Don’t fear me, because of the colour of my skin,
Don’t judge me because my skin isn’t the same colour as yours.

don't judge me




Happiness is the smell of freshly baked bread,
The warmth of the sun on your back,
The sight of a beautiful man who happens to notice you,
The feel of freshly cut grass or silk clothes,
It’s a stranger smiling at you or an old friend calling to say they miss you,

It’s walking around with a big grin on your face,
Happiness is a feeling of content and appreciation for what you have.
