To judgmental folks everywhere…

Judge away for all I care

Judge me here while I declare

As long as my actions do not affect you

Your judging me is a reflection of you

To conform to a stereotype, long I have tried

Portraying myself as someone I was not inside

Yet judgmental remarks never ceased

The more I bent, the more they increased

You’ve called me modern, you’ve called me traditional

I’m sure you can think of adjectives additional

To criticize me as if it were your birthright

Have you considered such comments are impolite?

The clothes I wear, the places to which I go

When I return home, are not your business, so,

Your judgment on those counts is completely wasted on me

I’m not going to modify my behavior, you see

I don’t want to do so, but when you judge me

You give me the right to judge you based on reciprocity

Who knows I might cause skeletons in your closet

To fall out- would that make you upset?
