‘Never judge a book by it’s cover’

‘Never judge a book by it’s cover’

First appearance can be deceptive
An immediate falsify
A fudged fabrication
from within the mind’s eye

How can one criticize a character
without the knowledge of the truth ?
It takes time to gain evidence
one needs demonstrated proof

‘Never judge a book by it’s cover’
whilst this idiom is very true
Isn’t it so simple to misread a situation ? I know I often do

One should be willing to except circumstance
what has past before has gone 
Give the benifit of the doubt, 
start anew & move on

‘Innocent until proven guilty’
surely everyone deserves a second chance ?
One has not the wisdom nor the comprehension on an initial glance
