JUDGE ME NOT
I will not hide behind a degree!
I will not curl up behind a label!
I will not waiver in my faith
I will trust him, remain calm and stable
I will not drown my sorrows in wine
I will not escape my pain in cocaine lines
I will not get lost in my TV.
But i will be free and just be me
I will radiate with joy
I will respond to negativity with love and coy
I will break these prison walls
If you get short with me
I shall remain tall.
I will not give you any of my power
I will not give you my kindness to devour
I will not allow this treason
I will love you for no reason
I will rise above this doubt
I will have courage and just come out
I will move forward and keep going
There is now way that i will stop
If i have to crawl, squeal, kneel or hop
I will live
I shall not die
I will rise above
And kiss the sky
