Enemy At First Sight

Enemy At First Sight

some people

bring fear into a room

ideologies that I am expected

to accomodate

without knowing

what fear they bring into the room

 

they prejudge me

for prejudging them

merely because of who I am

of who I appear to be to them

 

I am an enemy at first sight

without having to say a word

or take any action

other than being there

of being unlike them

 

they feel unsafe

because I am not invisible

and it is my fault

all my fault

for not understanding

what they haven’t told me
