Who Do You See?

hands-uniting

When you see me, who do you see? A black face?

Someone who evokes rage or fright,

Undeserving mercy, grace?

 

When you see me, who do you see? Skin not white?

Brown skinned, Latino, immigrant?

Taking your jobs, not their birthright!

 

When you see me, who do you see? Islam front?

Muslim, terrorists, secret spies,

Jail them, burn up their mosques, manhunt?

 

When you see me, who do you see? Slanted eyes?

Faceless people who always yield

From China to NHPIs?

 

When you see me, who do you see? A blue shield?

A system, bloodshed, a monster

Who changes home to battlefield?

 

When you see me, who do you see? White, blinder

and more deaf; loath to step into

shoes of your pain or color?

 

When you see me, when will you see that I am

a child of God blessed by the Lamb?

        Hi Susan, how are you today? Hey, what is the emoji you sent me? I get it quite often but it only comes to me as a “square!”

      2. Sorry about that. It was a smiley face.

        No problem…I get a square from several readers…it’s something in my software which doesn’t convert the emoji into a smiley face. Glad it IS a smile! 🙂
