The Flavor of Ice Cream
By: Leah Galvez
Chocolate, vanilla, cookies and cream, rocky road
C’mon this is nothing to decode.
They are all different flavors, but they are all ice cream!
Same with people!
We are different races, but we are all human beings.
We are like the flavors of ice cream
So why can’t we just be a team?
It seems that we have forgotten, “I Have A Dream”,
the speech by Martin Luther King!
Because we now frown upon those, society calls
and we call human beings things!
We teach our children to scream
when a “thing”
that is not like them approaches
and maybe all they wanted to do was find a friend.
it’s time for us to mend
that open wound that keeps getting infected.
Remember the song “Why Can’t We Be Friends”, So why can’t we?
Why can’t we be the flavors of ice cream in an ice cream parlor
where nobody will judge what flavor you choose,
because in the end ice cream is ice cream.
