Faces

If the faces were turned away
If the smiles were hidden from view
What would one think?
Normalcy
They would think normalcy
You would think normalcy
Without question
Without a doubt
Girl’s dancing and laughing
Squealing and shouting
And if they turned and the faces were no longer hidden
What would you think now?
Would you recoil seeing the faces?
The slanting lids and sometimes protruding tongues
Would you maybe take a step back?
Maybe
If you knew the truth
If you only knew the truth
You would take a step forward
And embrace the difference
And the sameness
Mostly the sameness
But if you knew
Truly knew
It would be the difference that brought you in
And made you smile
