Poem: Change

Photo credit:  Annie Spratt

Would you love me still?

If I was born in New England,

Speak in tongues of many nations,

Dance like a graceful—swan,

Walk like I own the best pavilion:

Would you love me—still?

If I change my style of speaking,

to fit in: to be somewhat like you?

Then, I will try my best to love you,

even when it may feel like,

the hardest thing to do!
