There is no real dichotomy between you and me,
For we both have eyes, ears, noses, and feet.
Thank God that hearts don’t notice color or race,
But only seek another heart with the same beats.
Delirious were we when love finally found us,
It reminded us of our value and worth.
We had both suffered so very much,
Looking for love on this planet called Earth.
We became impervious to the looks of disapproval
From people who thought that we were odd.
We learned to concentrate on each other and
Love wholeheartedly, like two peas in a pod.
