Casting Judgement from High Pedestals

Casting Judgement from High Pedestals
Casting Judgement from High Pedestals

I feel the coarse hot winds of judgement,
from people who don’t know me,
assumptions they make after sharing
with another who knows even less,
and they freely discuss me, my circumstance,
when they know nothing,
not taken the time to find out.

This chatter of people I once knew,
gets back to me and I am aghast,
considering I haven’t spoken to them for decades,
and they make judgement about my mental health,
my ability as a father, my personal life
that they obviously know nothing about;
how twisted their lies.

I care not for their thoughts,
for it is plain to see that even people I once respected
have fallen to their own egos and negativism,
when I utter nothing and know little of their lives,
nor would want to talk about it, in ignorance,
yet people will put you down,
for no other reason than they can; how sad.

I have come to realise that many people
who profess to be one thing, are quite another,
the actual professing is the give away,
for those who are, are, without need to advertise,
it is the pretenders who fall to dark resolves,
judge and bitch and in doing so absolve themselves
as if they are better; the truth is… they are not.

I am a simple man, with a simple life…chosen,
I am happy, contented, creatively fulfilled
and no-one has the right to judge me negatively,
regardless of who they think they are,
I seek to be no better of worse, I simply am,
and if they don’t get that, not my problem,
so I choose not to have anything to do with
judgmental people.
That is my choice.

    People who are judgmental are seriously lacking something, mainly love of self, in their life. They are not worth your valuable time. What I see in you, Tony, is kindness, an abundance of creative genius, and love. You are greatly loved.

    You are sweet, thank you Phyllis. Yes, I’m sick of these kinds of people and I won’t tolerate them anymore. Cheers!
