The Unknown

While walking on the cobblestones in Saudi Arabia
I noticed many Arab women with dark distinct features
Staring at me, watching my every move

The huge willow trees frantically try to keep their branches from flying away
While teenagers passively go to school each day
The high school set on the United States compound that stands tall day after day

White young women feel inferior, now underestimating their strengths

[Hata Bildir]
