Labels can be found on water bottles & soup cans

But all too often they are found on our fellow man

We have all been guilty of judging others

Though instead we should love our sisters & brothers

 

That girl in the colorful outfit dancing to electronic music must be on drugs

And that boy dressed in all black sitting alone looks like he needs hugs

The well dressed man drinking espresso must have a superiority complex

While the woman in the short skirt & high heels must be looking for sex

 

Stereotypes exist because a fair number of people seem to fit within a specific label

But even within that group, how well do we know them & what they bring to the table?

And beyond that, we just decide by looking at someone that they must indeed that label fit

When in reality, we haven’t the faintest clue of their intelligence, emotions, humor, or wit

 

Many might appear to either not notice or not care

But speaking from experience, it hurts when people whisper & stare

Please don’t assume you know me based on what you see

Instead why don’t you actually try getting to know me?

 

Based on appearance, religious beliefs, our job, or even our family ties

We judge others & then some take it even further & start telling lies

Upon looking at someone, there is still so much about them we haven’t a clue

I think it’s time we stop judging & labeling people, don’t you?

 

I have been guilty of it myself & so I know that this goes out to me as well

It’s so easy to look at someone & think we know all there is to tell

But having been on the receiving end of things, I know that’s not true

The truth is, until we talk, you don’t really know me & I really don’t know you
