I’m cold and I am hungry and my home is on the street,
All I can see is Judgement in the eyes of those I meet.
Their eyes say, “Why’s he living here, why is he not employed,
They do not know what happened to make my life a void.
I am a teenage runaway I’m mixed up and alone,
I just can’t find it in myself to heal things and go home.
You look at me and judge me for not being like the rest,
I am not bad, I’ll work things out, I’m trying to do my best.
I am a senior citizen in the twilight of my years,
My life’s been full of happiness but now it’s full of fears.
Please make me feel included, my self-confidence renew.
Don’t judge my inabilities, embrace what I can do.
I am addicted, full of fear, my life is such a mess,
Don’t judge the way I’m acting or the way that I might dress.
I need to find acceptance, to get help to rise above,
Please put away your judgement and give to me your love.
I am a recent refugee, my homeland’s been destroyed,
Some judge me for the way I talk or dress and get annoyed.
I want my family to be safe to live and grow and thrive.
We want to join you, learn your ways, we’re glad to be alive.
I am the Son of Abba, did you see me in their eyes?
I came to you in many forms so you would realize.
Judgement is not for you to give, my commandment is to love.
Reach out, embrace, and do not judge; My love will rise above.
