poem ~ before you judge me

Before you judge me,
Maybe ask some questions to learn the truth.

Before you judge me,
Maybe be willing to see a different perspective then your view.

Before you judge me,
Maybe trust there are more details then the surface provides.

Before you judge me,
Maybe realize there is pain deep inside.

Before you judge me,
Maybe let me show you how I got to this place where I hide.

Before you judge me,
Realize maybe I'm just trying to cope.

Before you judge me,
Give my heart a reason to have hope.

Before you judge me,
Let me share with you what I'm afraid of.

Before you judge me,
Show me you care about my mess.

Before you judge me,
Let me share with you the back story.

Before you judge me,
Remove the beam from your own eye.

Before you judge me,
I'd rather be accepted then rejected for my beliefs in Christ.

Before you judge me,
Forgive me for I know not what I do.

Before you judge me,
Give me a chance to change your mind.

Before you judge me,
Let love be the reason for making me try.

Before you judge me,
I'd love you to walk with me in my shoes.

Before you judge me,
Give me some credit that I'm doing my best.

Before you judge me,
Help me to grow beyond my very best.

Before you judge me,
Remember that the power of life comes from an extension of grace.

Before you judge me,
Make a list of all the things that you are grateful for about me.

Before you judge me,
Remember I'm a work in progress.

Before you judge me,
Don't expect perfection of me when none of us are perfect.

Before you judge me,
Give me space to learn on this journey.

Before you judge me,
I can tell you this is where my strength resides.

Before you judge me,
Maybe just love me beyond what is humanly possible to do.
