Close Your Eyes

a poem by Zarina B Gaffar

When I close my eyes
I see black not white

When you close your eyes
You see white not black

When I see a child
I see love not hate

When you see a child
You see hate not compassion

Why are we so different
Are we not all the same seed

Ignorance is fear
And what is fear is loneliness

Open your eyes now
I can see you.
