House On Fire - Poem by Khembottra Oum

The difference between the truth and a lie
is forgiveness knocking on a door.
The difference between you and me,
is I'm gonna keep on knocking on that door.

What separates heroes from villains,
is a love that has cracked the glass window.
What separates my right from your wrong
is that my right is always going to be your wrong.
