Learn To Read Before You Judge

You think you know someone
But have you really
Taken the time
To actually
See them
Get to know
A damn thing
About them
Or are the things you
Say you know about them
Just things you
Assume about them
When you look
At some one
Is it really them
You are seeing
Or the stereotype
You don't even
Know your seeing
Think about it carefully
Those prejudice thoughts
Have a way of
Sneaking up on you
So next time you look
At somebody
Who you you
May not not know so well
Who may be different from you
Who you may have an opinion on
Just ask yourself exactly where
That opinion is coming from
