Rushing To Judgment

February 9, 2016 § Leave a comment

I just realized that after a flurry of posts to start the year, I have posted nothing in three weeks. My apologies.

Around the time of my last post, I wrote some lyrics for a song dealing with people’s rush to judgment. In the aftermath of the Super Bowl and with all of the criticisms being leveled at Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, this seemed an appropriate time to share those lyrics even though they don’t specifically have anything to do with that situation.

Don’t Worry ‘Bout Me

So many people full of judgment
Got nothing else better to do
They say I’m headed for damnation
If I don’t change before I’m through

Listening to them, one thing is clear to me
They should mind their own damn business and let me be

Who am I hurting? Where is the crime?
We all end up in the same place in our own time
Maybe I’m not your cup of tea
Just go about your business and don’t worry ’bout me

All these accusatory glances
As if I’ve got something to hide
Sometimes I have to stop and wonder
Who made them God; who went and died?

Watching them walk, their judgmental noses in the air
They need to get their own house in order before they stop and stare

Who am I hurting? Where is the crime?
We all end up in the same place in our own time
Maybe I’m not your cup of tea
Just go about your business and don’t worry ’bout me

No need to worry ’bout me
