Judge me not by were I have been
Judge me not by the color of my skin
Judge me not by the clothes I wear or by the way I speak
Judge me not by the scars that mar my skin, from so many a blade kissing my flesh
Judge me not by the ribbon that wraps around my neck, a reminder of what I have done and what I will never do again
Judge me not by the ink that colors my flesh, which tells a story across my skin
I am not defined by things you can see, by things you can hear, by things you can smell
I am made from sterner stuff that you can see, hear, or smell
I am not what you know from the past, a boy stuck in stagnant stinking depression
I am not what you see on the surface, a happy Young Man, always joking, always their
I am a protector that you never need
I am a big brother that is never their
I am a friend that only wants you to be happy
I am Nicholas Todd Gackenbach and that is all that I ever will be and i am happy with that
tell me who you are if you feel comfortable, i truly would like to know

This is definitely a poem that will stick with me for a long time. I like the message you are sending. There is too much judgement in the world. And it's nice to see you really getting back into the swing of poetry writing again. A lot of us are still afraid to tell our story. So it is brave and inspiring when you are willing to reach past YOUR past to connect to ours. I truly love this!!!
