Unlogical Logic & the Innocence of a Child, by Anonymous

Why do they say she’s different?
I didn’t understand
She didn’t seem so different to me
When we were holding hands.
Is it because I’m a boy and she’s a girl?
Other girls and boys play…
So why should it matter to them
If I’m with her all day?
Maybe it’s our parents;
Maybe they aren’t friends,
But who says it’s the parents job
To decide when a friendship ends?
Why do they say she’s different?
His parents hoped one day it’d sink in
That they thought the girl was no good and so different
Because of the color of her skin…
