“Don’t assume”

please do not assume
about who I am
or what I stand for
based on whether my eyes
are brown or blue
or the color of my skin tone
do not judge based on
who I pray to or not pray to
do not based me on
where I come from
or the languages I speak
do not make assumptions
on my job title
or the uniform I wear
on what music I listen to
who I chose to date or love,
or whether I wear a bikini,
a suit, a dress or a hijab
please don’t judge based
on how I wear my hair
because a professor once told me
when you assume, you make an ass
out of you and me
and it is the wisest thing
I have heard so far
