Was I Judged? (La Germania)
Accepting people as they are to me
has made my life a fun and fine affair.
I find surprises happen when you care.
An honest interest sets many free.
The dullest stranger has a history
that may astound, amaze, and entertain,
a history they’re happy to explain,
to work through how today has come to be.
A page long post you sent with this refrain:
“Refrain from judging people sir; just wait,
and walk in shoes that led them to their fate.”
That you would think I would not caused me pain.
I’m thankful that your post was boiler plate.
There’s no room left within my heart for hate.
