  • The Same

    Young as I was,
    Naïve as could be –,
    I saw my classmate
    crying by the tree,
    making a puddle
    blue as the sea.
    I went up to ask,
    “Why cry under this tree?”
    “My ice cream had dropped.
    Can you not see?”
    He pointed to a spot
    next to his knee.
    “I’ll give you mine!”
    I respond gaily.
    His eyes narrowed
    to the size of two peas.
    “We’re not the same!
    Now leave-
    me-
    be!”
    He pushed me down
    and rushed past me.
    Now I roll to my side
    by the puddle of sea
    asking the puddle,
    “What is wrong with me?”
    I stare at the puddle,
    and it stares back at me.
