Tanisha Shelton: My global friends
I have friends from everywhere.
Some come from nearby, a few hours away
And some come from afar, overseas they stay.
Some eat different foods than I
And others tell me what foods to try.
Some have straight hair that is dark as night.
Some have curly hair, with frizz they fight.
Our skin tones may not be the same
But I like them and their ethnic name.
They are wonderful, these few friends of mine.
They are delightful; I go to them to spend time.
I wish you could meet them and then you’ll see
What makes me feel happy and so full of glee.
