Our Venn-Diagram - Poem by Tori Beals

The stars align
you see a sign
I see serendipity
Someone is killed
I'm anger filled
you're overwhelmed in tradgedy
Strangers find something new
I see it too
you'll find it out eventually
There's a new show
you want to go
I'll watch the old one back at home
A mother says, 'She was taken from me.'
you look at it hopefully
while I see it realistically
A baby falls into the water
you reached out and caught her
at the same time as me
We go to read a book
it only took one look
and we reached for the same copy
We go to school
you think it's cool
and you do too
The teacher says we need to learn
I know that is what I yearn
for, same as you
You say that we're different
I say we're the same
and we both know we're both right
but who knows who to blame?
