The Same Love

You look at them
You look at me
You see a difference
Difference in pigment
Difference in skin tone

I look at them
They look at me
I see the same love
Love of a mother
Love of a child

There is no hate
There is no anger
There is no pain in their eyes
Innocent and untouched by this world
I must stand for them

Their hearts matter
Their thoughts matter
Their words matter
They matter
Their Black Lives Matter

Washington Native. I am an adventurer trapped in a broken shell. I love deep and loud. My pain and happiness comes out on paper. Enjoy.
