climbing inside his skin

i misjudged a man today.
i had judged him as an old illiterate.
in fact, he was so much more cultured than me.

i misjudged a woman today
i had judged her as a sweet pushover.
in fact, she was sensible conservative.

cousin told me i shouldn’t judge too quickly.
judging makes it hard to shake off those judgments,
to see past it to see more.
