Dookoo wasn't like the other children. And they knew it.
They made fun of Dookoo for the colour of his skin and his big brown eyes.
But what Dookoo didn't know was that he was special.
His blue skin made him special. His big brown eyes made him special. You could see into his soul by looking into those eyes.
But the other children didn't care to find that out. They only looked at the surface. Didn't dig any deeper. Didn't get to know his soul. Or how big his purple heart is.
And they lost out.
For they will never know the amazing strength of Dookoo. The fearlessness. The kindess. The love he has to share. Because it is the love of the world. The love of 7 billion people all wrapped up in one little sad little creature.
And no-one will ever get to know that love.
Because the world was so cruel to him, one day he found a razor blade and decided to end it all
Then he found happiness.
Then he found peace.
Then he found love.
And the world will never know just how much they missed out.
