They say do not judge people
By how they look and speak of you
Quoting just don’t look at the cover
Then not go ahead and read the book
Although sometimes maybe you should
Because some are a different story
That’s not worth you reading at all
Sometimes trying to know more
Will leave you feeling sad and sorry
They will break your precious heart
They will toy with your hard-earned patience
They will misunderstand your vulnerability
They will tramp your wounds with words
They will slice open your scars
They will trouble your calm soul
Until you’re tired of even feeling tired
So you start to dance while bleeding
Laughing along with the distress
As it laughs sheepishly at you
Because what blinded them
Awakened you
