The Truth of the Matter

The truth of the matter:

I'm a pretty little white girl.

I have problems, but so do you.

By looking at the divisions

We isolate and impede the vision

Of a better home, a better heart

A new, fresh start.

So change the perspective, 

And give yourself a corrective

Approach to judgment and stereotypes.

Shed the skin of your label,

And accept the individuality

and blossoming around you.

You will find a vast world

of beauty, complexity, depth

and colors and forms unimaginable


That's the truth.
