Different Colors Same Situation

Black girl and white girl live in the same broken neighborhood

Judging each other thinking she has it better

Being hateful towards another not knowing they in the same situation 

Both watching the same scene 

Shots being fired killing someone innocent 

Stuck between the same four walls 

The same four walls that broke their childhood

Each story having a different meaning

What happens between those walls are hidden stories
