My heart aches,
For the hatred spread.
I as a unicorn,
With a glittering horn,
From the crest of my forehead,
Quite a superficial creature
I would be.
In fact there would only be one of me,
My white fur silky and satin,
My mane and tail beautiful pink,
I would walk proudly,
Amongst the people, holding my head high,
Treating everyone as an equal.

I would be the unicorn,
Speaking with people nation wide,
Spreading my wings,
Flying through the skies.

Listening to their troubles and sorrows,
Helping them realize
Racism and hatred,
Is not a cure for better tomorrows.

If only, I could be a unicorn,
My beauty would allow them to see,
A superficial creature,
Yet they still could love me me.

We do not chose,
Who we are born to be,
So all I ask, is accept one another,
I believe color blind is the best way to be.

(big hugggsssssss) Oh kellie, I too join your prayers and hope that somehow we can have the heart to accept one another all around and find a common bond to share of love! (sigh) You are a true unicorn of inspiration to us all, sweet friend, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Kellie, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton

Hatred is the ugliest of things, and the unicorn is quite lovely, I think. Fine poem.

The wonders of the innocence of a child, something I will probably miss, but now as I get older I will need to stray away from but hold the moments close in my heart!
