Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
We are so quick to judge by what we see

Look at
Me with eyes
That harbor hate
Judging who I am when you don't know me.

Tetractys Contest writing prompt entry
Writing Prompt
Tetractys is a simple and interesting form of poetry. Write a poem, with only five lines. Each line adds one syllable until the last stanza which has ten syllables. The structure is: line 1 - 1 syllable,
line 2 - 2 syllables, line 3 - 3 syllables,
line 4 - 4 syllables,
line 5 - 10 syllables

So often we've been taught to judge by appearances in spite of what our logical minds and loving hearts say about 'judging a book by its cover.' It's an essential skill for safety but it aborts so many friendships in the making.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
