Jenny was her name, and she judged a guy based off of other people's opinions

Unable to feel comfortable with whom she was talking to 

Done, is what she said to all of her genuine memories with him. 

Going with the current she shoved him away.

Maybe you should not let what other people think dictate how you feel, he said. 

Even Jenny knew she was a hypocrite, always preaching to swim against the current. 

Never let your mind steer your first, always let your heart do the guiding. 

To the night that Jenny will understand that a heart is immune to judgment, let that be one more person who will not judge.
