Testify

I see you now.

I have been stripped.

I have no more

Preconceived notions,

Century old stereotypes,

Religious mores,

Chauvinistic attitudes.

There are no barriers

Blocking my view,

No invisible shields,

Nothing.

I don’t see your class status,

I don’t see your gender,

I don’t see your color,

I only see you.

A human.

A human being.

I am stripped,

I see you now,

For who you are,

A fellow human being.
