    I have ,had a flashback of how we used to play outside.....
    We had so much fun...
    On that Playground there was this stony Rocky Mountain with ropes on it and we used to climb from the ground to the top of it...
    You always were fasther than me....
    full of energie....., youre arms were strong cause you did Volleyball
    or sumthing......
    My arms were long thin and dancy but i didnt mind cause we always had a good time and laught....

    When we would play on the Greenfields we always warned each other...
    "'watch OUT for the Dog_ish!!""....
    Sometime we both looked at it together .........to see if we could find some Art in It.......

    These moments i,ll i hardly forget...

    But this was a moment I would never Forget........

    It was 15:30 or sumthing in the afternoon...
    when we were disturbed in our playing and i got introduced to this thing called
    ""Racism""....i real life...
    That was the moment i realised that there was a little differance between Ms Greenfield and me.....
    but that little differancewas a Big one to others....
    I remembered it as if it was last night...when these little demons took over their little body,s of these other kids that were also playing there.....

    They came up to us and started sayig to me .....

    "'HEY YOU!""" "'MOVE FROM HERE!""

    Miss Green field and i looked up and said...... "'why ?"'

    they said ; ""BECAUSE WE SAID SO!""

    Miss Greenfield said: ; "'No ......we are playing here !""

    I was silent because i recodnised that this was that thing that my mother alway,s had warned me for.......

    finaly i said quit : "'Yeah ..... were just playing here "" ""were doing nothing wrong ?"'
    Than they said :; ""GO AWAY <GO AWAY GO AWAY!""......................


    ""GO BACK TO YOURE COUNTRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!""

    I said ": """ but i,m born here....""

    Miss greenfield started to put up a angry voice and said...""NO YOU GO AWAY we are PLAYING here !! ""

    My body was shaking.....
    than they said to Ms Greenfield "" YOU MAY STAY.......BUT "'SHE '
    HAS TO GO! ""
    Than they picked up some stones and rocks and started to trowing them towards me,i coverd my face and started to run.....
    Ms greenfield ran away with me 10 meters ahead.... we stopped..............
    i stood there in tears.....
    We turned around and looked at the distance and saw them celebrating for what they had accomplished ......
    I saw an expression on the face of Ms greenfield ..it was like "'no one is going to disturb my afterschoolplay with my nice friend ""...
    She started to look around and found two Big branches and walked up to me and said "'We are going to show them sumthing "" and i started to smiling trough my tears......
    We started to walk back slowly and she said ....""start making a Lot of noice""

    ""AAAAAAAARCHHHH ARRCHHH"'' she said ""we are going show them that we are angry ""
    Finaly we arrived with them and started to wave with the branches making a lot of noice....
    but we saw that the little demons gained Won the souls of more little fella,s,and they started to trow stones to....
    and they became bigger and sharper....,so we finaly left the branches behind and ran straight to her moms house......
    Her mam took us in and gave us a warm cup of thee......
    Greenfield with her arm around me ... and me trying to tell her mam the story.....

    ""ttt tt th they th theyy ......www ww aant tted me me me ..tttt to to ,,,,
    gg gggg go bbbbbbbbbbb bbbbbbbbbbbb back ttt tttt too
    mmmmmmm my ccccccc counttry........................bbbbbbbbbbbbbb
    bbbbbbbbbbbbbut i,m bbbbbbbbborn hhhhhhere""

    UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU
    UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

    She finaly calmed me down ...
    and said "'sweety these children are just ignorant ,there is nothing wrong with you""
    After a while when my face was all dryed up and clean Ms greenfield Showed me her big sisters room (cause she was not at home) wich was a big fan of Duran Duran..
    They finaly brought me home because i had to pass that playground again.
    Arrived at home , we said Goodnight...""bye see you tommorow""....
    Before she went she said....""i,m sorry we lost the battle....maybe if i had done more push ups for volleyball i would have knocked them down .......""

    than i said to her.......


    No we didnt lost the ""Battle"" ............because....


    ..i had One friend who stood up for me.......
