Shallow Judgment

I look at you
And I’m filled with disgust,
Hate.
I just don’t know what to think.
You are my enemy.

How can you even live to be so mean,
Cruel?
I just don’t know what to think.

The eyes on your face
Look at the world with scorn
They see only the bad in others, nothing else.

The tongue in your mouth
Only speaks of the evil
That you see in me
In the people around us

And now I ask
Why don’t you see yourself?
Can’t you realize that you are what you hate?
Can’t you see that
You
Are what you
Despise, You are exactly what you hate?

And yet
When I’m looking at you
I see myself in your eyes and
I just don’t know what to think

Do you need someone
To talk to?
Is that why you’re like this?

Do you want
Power?
Is that why you’re like this?

Do you need anybody?
You just need someone to love
Is that why you’re like this?
So, my friend, I will try.
And I promise you
I will try to be that person
When I look at you
With disgust,
Hate,
I will know what to think:
You are my friend.
