I’ve seen children…young boys…walking arm in arm

their faces in identical grins

I’ve seen them laughing….playing, hugging

without questioning the different colors of their skin…


I’ve seen girls and boys walking together

I’ve seen them playing…climbing trees

without questioning their different sexes…

all so young 

so innocent 

so free.


I’ve seen young boys walking hand in hand

I’ve seen young girls walking this way too…

never thinking that one day there will be people

who think this is taboo.


I’ve seen children walking united

I’ve seen how their love is strong…

and I’ve also seen them being taught

how these feelings might be wrong


Which makes me wonder…

when it comes to how to love one another

If we are searching fro the truth

perhaps the answers can be found

In the wisdom of our youth.
