Let other people in

Let other people in

As a child

I can recall

The words

Formed like an insult

You care about others more

More than your own family

I can recall

The words

The confusion

I didn’t know it was wrong

To connect with others

I didn’t let it get in my way

If I had I wouldn’t be half the person

That I am today

Without those people

My family’s ignorance

Plain to my 7 year old mind

Would have pulled me apart

Not a pretty sight
