Walk in My Shoes

You think you know me 
because you can see me 
You think you know my life
Because you can hear me speak 
You think you know the feelings on the inside 
Because the smile on the outside 
You label me for the little things I do 
You label me for the little things I say 
But you don't know me 
You may think you are better than me 
Fact is I'm a lot stronger than you think I am 
You don't know what i have been through 
So please keep an open mind 
Don't judge me 
Until you have walked in my shoes

    I like the slightly softened in-your-face attitude. Being judged based on almost no real understanding is difficult to swallow and to face up to. Brave writing! J
