I see nothing different.

Not black or women.

Simply people around me.

Outer shells are merely birthright.

Look past the surface, discover their soul.

Respect the total package.

I hear nothing different.

Just thoughts attempting escape.

Their broken voices trapped by unsolicited gifts.

Listen for connection.

They wish only to be heard.

Don’t you want the same?

I feel nothing different.

No judgement cast down.

A reflex of acceptance.

Change the ingrained, embrace the new.

They are who they love to be.

Honour their chosen roles.

I am nothing different.

Our similarities go unnoticed.

We breath, we think.

Why question anything else?

Rise above the typical.

Question the trend.

Embrace your given compassion.
