A Chance

Location


A look

A smile

A nose turned up

A small crinkle in the heart


Eye contact made

A quick little wave

A sharp piercing glare

Eye contact broke


Out on the street

A gentle shoulder bump

A small apologetic smile

Hateful words of spite


A turban

A Hijab

Tan colored skin

Unprovoked terrified thoughts


Praying

Worshiping

Sharing one’s love

Cut down for all to see


Dark man on a street

Fast pacing heart

A rush to the other side

A sad broken smile


Prejudice

To Pre Judge

Dehumanizing

Separate spheres of life


Black: Blood and Bones

White: Blood and Bones

Yellow: Blood and Bones

Red: Blood and Bones


Different outside

The same within

Different in life

But the same within


Then just one

All it takes

Ripple effect

What it creates


Love

Friendship

Non-Prejudice
Acceptance.
