Some Heads Are Thicker Than Concrete Walls

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

I am what it is you are not.
What we both have in common...
Is this as a similarity.

And the only differences we perceive,
Are those likes and dislikes...
We exchange constantly.
Although we seem not able,
To accept our feelings and beliefs.

When the unimportance of our skin color,
Is kept as a priority to create division.
When two hands, two feet and one head,
We all have.
I do admit this because it has been witnessed.

Have you noticed,
Some heads are thicker than concrete walls?
If you haven't...
It's okay.
That's understandable.
