Stereotypes – OZIOMA OKAFOR

I once thought all apples were green until I saw a red one

I once thought all peppers were red until I saw a green one

I once thought all boards were black until I came across a white one

I once thought all hairs were black until I met a blonde

I once thought all eyes were round until I saw a Japanese

I once thought all roses were red until I was given a white one

So I have learnt never to believe in stereotypes

But to look past the group and see the individual

And so until I’m proved wrong

I am yet to believe all bananas are yellow

And all strawberries are red

About PenAStory

PenAStory is a group of young individuals with a passion for literature who have decided to come together to write under one platform. We seek to educate, inform as well as entertain our readers. Also, because we are targeting young literature lovers, we would like to touch on other interests of their lives hence the relationship category and because we all need a bit of motivation in our lives, we decided inspiration won't be so bad
