"We were once as brothers"

Childhood Friends

We were once as brothers
or so I thought.
Deep bonds
built on summer walks.
Talks of crushes
over lunches when we shop.
But these pleasant outings 
would suddenly come to a stop 
when your slipped race preferences
brought me to a halt.
Now I wish
we could forget all of our faults.
Oh, dear brothers
from another, white mother,
our ties unknot.
