In the hallway. The students.

Pass by in a blur, while

Talking. Their conversations

Float and racist slurs

Sting my ears. Their hateful words

Cloud my mind. The lockers slam loudly

But do not cover the pain they cause.

Their book bags fall to the floor

With an angry thud. They do not hide the

Nastiness of their sounds.

Why can’t people just look past color?

Why can’t people blend together like

A fruit smoothie?

Words of kindness and tolerance are much

Easier to swallow.
