 once upon a time

You don't look like me, in fact, i distrust you.

Why, because, because what, i don't know.

Its  just, just what, well you're a different color,

different religion, okay,lets see if I've got your

reasoning correct, you fear me because-yes.!

 

Can we stop a moment and assess why you 
fear and dislike me.
You look like the terrorist i see on TV.
Always bombing, shooting, killing people.

Oh right, now I see,because is the cause of fear.
I'm a killer because of my color and religion- yes.!

 

I find this very strange, because i  believe in god.
Because i practice peace, kindness and goodness 

in my life, yet you fear me. Perhaps if we both got

to know one another we wouldn't fear each other.

Why do you fear me, yes, but why, because.!!
