The Essence of Me

Judge me not by what I wear
Nor by the words I know.
Don’t measure me by what I own
Or places that I go.
Don’t think you’ll get the mark of me
From languages I talk,
Nor yet by how my hair is cut;
Not by the way I walk!

Judge me not by who I know
Nor by the books I’ve read.
Don’t measure me by prettiness
Or witty things I’ve said.
Don’t think you’ll get the mark of me
From how I take my tea.
The way I burp the alphabet
Is how to weigh up me.
