Smiling Tears.............

Skin as black as charcoal
Teeth as white as snow
You glanced in my direction
My smile was there to show
You stumbled on some words
You stopped and tried to share
How were you to know
That someone else would care
Ignorance was abound you said
In your present state of mind
As tears flowed from your eyes
How could I be so kind
I was kinda taken back
Not used to this reaction
Asked if she was ok
As she checked on her direction
Off she went up the street
As I contemplated my fate
Wiping tears from her eyes
The injustice I could relate ........
