Black/White

 

 Two people can look at the exact same thing

 and see something totally different.

 

 

I laugh just like you, I cry and feel pain.
When you touch my skin, we feel just the same.
But you were born black and I was born white,
Our prejudice formed because of our sight.
But if you were blind and I couldn’t see,
Just think of how nice our friendship could be!
(Poem by Forrest Campbell)
