Judging Eyes

Location

 

She says, "let me breathe, let me be

Why can’t you just let me be me?

Stop dictating my choices

And understand why they’re made.”

 

You look at her with judging eyes

When you yourself are criticized

Although she knows she’s not perfect

She doesn’t degrade you

 

She looks inside herself, hoping to see

The beauty she sees in you, but it’s not in her destiny

She’ll never be you

And you constantly prove it

 

You look at her with judging eyes

When you yourself are criticized

Although she knows she’s not perfect

She doesn’t degrade you

 

She’s tired and afraid, she tries so hard

But never rewarded, she’s always been scarred

From this life she’s been living

And she thinks maybe, its not worth it

 

Just another day, just one more day

Nothing new, nothing to make her stay

She’s wanted out for so long

But always had that one last hope

 

That last hope that you broke

Like ripping off a band aid without letting it soak

She’ll hope you’re happy

She’ll hope you see. That

 

You looked at her with judging eyes

When you yourself should have been criticized

She knew she wasn’t perfect

And yet you still degraded her

 

She was a girl with a happy smile

For anyone she would have went the extra mile

Instead she’s gone, singing a new song

Hoping you”ll see the beauty she saw.

 

The beauty of the people, the kindness of their souls

She saw the best, when she should have saw holes

She wanted to see from everyone's perspective

Maybe now in the clouds she can

 

HIgh above things cities bring

Flying on an eagles wing

The sweetest soul we’ll ever know

Finally now where she's always wanted to go.

 

I wrote this poem because suicide and depression is a very important issue for me, and I think it;s something that needs to be spoken about and that people need to be more aware of. People need to learn how to handle and deal with people who are depressed and suicidal. This poem was made to help people understand, and realize that these are serious issues and we need to be eduacted on them.
