What Do You See?
We live in a world where each person is called a human being.
What I want to know is when you look at me, what are you seeing?
We both have some basic and common body features
Beyond that, can you see that we are very different creatures?
Do you see that I live with my two mom’s but not my dad?
They are all loving, caring and glad.
If you have questions, please ask me, don’t hesitate
I want to tell you all of the ways that my family is great.
Can you see the color of my skin? Brown is the color of the skin I live in.
Skin might come in dark or in light,
For me and my friends, my skin color is just right.
You might think that because of my color I might be bad or poor.
If you really look at me, you are bound to see more.
My ancestry took a stand, so on a bus I could have a seat.
Honor me when I walk by, please don’t cross the street.
Do you think that my clothes might look kind of funny?
My family does not have very much money.
My mom spends her days and nights as she cleans,
Please ignore the look of my jeans.
My dad works from sun up to sundown on faraway farms,
Please do not stare at my sleeves that don’t go to the end of my arms.
Do you see that my beliefs and faith have been lead?
I show this by wearing a tallit on my shoulders and a kippah on my head.
Do you think my neighbor who is wearing a burka has something to hide?
It is important to know that she has a political and spiritual side.
Do you see me or do you see my wheels?
Do you have any idea how someone like me feels?
Do you see my life has been unfairly labeled?
What I need you to see is that I am differently abled.
Do you see my gray hair and my multiple wrinkles?
Please look closer, you can see in my eyes there are still many more twinkles.
I have experience and knowledge that only comes with age.
Please be patient with me and do not respond to me with anger and rage.
Impatient and frustrated is not a good way to be
Time is important, please share some of yours with me.
