You Have Not Done What I've Asked

I ask you to listen to me

You hear my words but you only hear, not listen

You have not done what I've asked

I ask you to care for me

You care about me but only to an extent

You have not done what I've asked

I ask you to love me

You use your tongue as a whip with the lashing of your harsh words

You have not done what I asked

I asked you to judge me

You form opinions without knowing everything

You have now done what I asked

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My community
My country
Our world
