Do Not Judge Me =========== Do not judge me... Open the Cover and Read Because I am thin Do not think my life is perfect. Stress may have caused the weight loss ...Notice the lines on my face. Because I am overweight Do not assume I drowned my sorrow with food. My metabolism may challenge me. ...See beyond my exterior. Because I am disfigured do not pity me The lessons I have learned may surpass yours 1,000 fold. ...Share my insight. Because I fit society's definition of beauty Do not despise me It may all have been paid for, to compensate for my internal insecurities. ...Observe the sorrow in my eyes. Because I do not speak eloquently Do not write me off as uneducated. Work and family responsibility may have stolen my childhood education. ...Listen to what I am trying to say. Do not judge me...
