one, by the other

To judge a book, by its cover
To judge a girl, by her mother
To judge a boy, by his brother
To judge me, by another

its simple but it has alot of meaning behind it. think about it.

Are you sure this is original work?

I am thinking about it and it is quite thoughtful, but the book by its cover is invariably overused. before you put such great thought and effort into a premise, make sure it isnt tried and tired.

i agrre with you but the reason i included it was so that when readers hear that tried and tired phrase they will hopefully stop to think about this poem. but thank you for your comment.
