There he found her on the road,
They walked and talked to the top of the hill.
Her face looked down as she began …
– “He is out of my life and I don’t know what to do”.
In shock and saddened, but then came the hidden truth …
-“I will never be accepted, why did I have this colour of skin?”
As she wished she could rip every layer from her body as she touched her arm.
He looked at her , “You are beautiful just the way you are”.
-“You don’t have to change, people should love you for who you are”.
It brought back the painful memories of being spat at, bullied and humiliated.
– “I’ve just had an egg thrown at my head”.
So fresh were the memories, the tears that rolled down her cheeks,
as she said thank you and they said their goodbyes …
This is a recording I made especially for all those who never and still believe that they will never be accepted, loved or cared for. Click to Listen – in Spanish and in English
