This is basically about how often times we can easily "judge a book by its cover" or be judged or criticized. How often, there is something there below the surface, and it can be seen if given the chance. I hope you all enjoy. :)

Judgement -

How we are viewed,

But not accurately.

What is behind everyone’s mask?

Secret talents, unheard dreams, crippling fears

Are rarely seen in judgement’s eyes -

Taking no time to see

Behind the mask

Judgement.

Unfair

To not be seen -

The core of everyone.

What makes us tick, what makes you, you.

Who we truly are, and want all to see.

But because we want acceptance,

We hide behind a mask,

Which is just so

Unfair.

Ideal -

No more secrets.

Wear your heart on your sleeve,

And become accepted by all.

Tear off your mask and let your soul run free.

Although this is hard to achieve,

If side by side we stand,

Maybe we’ll be

Ideal?
