Dear Judgement*

*Part of the  free verse “Dear Series” collaboration with my poetry Queen, my dear soul-sister, my cheerleader and encourager, my lovely friend, Nandita of Manan Unleashed.

Dear Judgement*

Once accepted,
I can’t be erased.
Once received,
I can’t be fazed.

Once you enter
you are usually seen.
Empathy is my mentor
I will not let you in.

I break hearts,
and infect minds,
turn lies to art,
make truths blind.

Hearts gets bleeding
You are so unkind.
A parasite feeding
on the feeble mind.

With self-righteous man,
I will surely flourish.
Cause there is no one
better than all he is.

You’re so hell bent
I hope you do your penance.
Dear Judgement,
I bid you good riddance.

  1. Ahhh I love this!! This poem in particular had such a great flow to it and it sounded like a conversation since every stanza switched perspectives from “I” to “you” and that worked really well here.

    1. I’m glad you saw that Jade. That’s how Rose and I always do it, she becomes the personification of the particular emotion and I the dispeller of it (well I try 🙂

  2. A great write from both you ladies! It is a pleasure to see two beautiful minds put together to pour out their hearts. May you both keep shining!

  3. Even with the title, this reads like an ancient riddle. But judgment is a riddle, due to our lack of understanding and our skill with it. It is fact and mystery, and you two command exploring each part. Congratulations–and thank you!

  4. Wonderful collaboration with Nadita. I very much enjoyed this like you were having a conversation with judgement and standing up to him. Telling him where he’ll end up in the end because empathy and acceptance wins. Well written you both!
