Fear of Judgment

Who needs to be heard when all you do is judge

Let me be the judge of me

I'm speaking and you are'nt listening

You're just judging every word, every movement, every thought and idea

Who needs to be heard by you if all you do is judge

You hurt so many that could'nt be broken

By judging the words they have left unspoken

Because of you the brilliance of many is left in the dark

It's left unspoken and with that unheard by so many other than you

The resentment they feel for not speaking their minds 

Will be a constant reminder of fear

Fear of what? Fear of you!

Of your judgment and your opinions shining through

This fear echos through their years

No one can speak past the judgment so they choose not to speak at all

Well who needs to be heard when all you do is judge them

Who needs to be heard by you
