Bahá’í

I tell you this, now,
he says
because you are my daughter
what makes the flower
white like your skin
while mine is dark?
what makes leaves
green?
and that man over there
he won’t talk to me
because, I think,
it is because
I am not
like him
we pray
to different gods
when we really just need
to love
