If you must judge me

A poem I wrote a few years ago.

If you must judge me

Judge me on the amount of struggle,
Adversity, and challenge that I’ve overcome to get here.

Judge me on my conviction
To be the best that I can be
With the knowledge that I have available to me.

Judge me on my mission to
Make an impact on the world
By living from my heart and spreading positive influence on others.

Judge me on my commitment
To bettering humanity in whatever way I can.

Judge me on the number of times
That I’ve gotten back up
After falling.

Judge me on the understanding that I’m human and all humans make mistakes along the way.

If you must judge me
Judge me wisely and on the things that actually matter…

For I’ll be doing the same for you.
