Be Curious, Not Judgmental

Poem inspired by Walt Whitman.

Don’t judge another person,
You have no right!
There’s fog and distortion
In what you have in sight…
You are not them
They are not you,
So why condemn?
Why tell them what to do?
You haven’t felt
What they’ve experienced
Or how they’ve knelt
To gain resilience…
You don’t understand
And you shouldn’t try;
Learn to accept,
Be it truth or a lie.



There is more to life than increasing its speed.
