Why China? Part 4: Before I Came to China

Before I came 
to China, 
I thought that 
all Chinese people
looked alike.

In China, 
I saw that 
Chinese faces 
are as different 
as snowflakes.

I swam 
in an ocean 
of Chinese faces 
and saw the music 
in their smiles 
and the warmth 
in their eyes.

Some faces 
reminded me of 
friends at home 
who are not Chinese.

I even saw one 
that reminded me 
of you.
