Her blue eyes stare at me

With wonder and hope

My heart breaks a little

But I still turn around and go.

 

Her blue eyes stare at me

With confusion and fear

My heart breaks a little more

But I’m told to leave her alone.

 

Her blue eyes stare at me

With awe and joy

As I ignore the others,

And start to walk to her.

 

Their brown eyes glare at me

With hatred and distrust

But I don’t care what they think

For the decision is mine.
