Zebra had always been unsure of his heritage. Was he a black horse with white stripes or a white horse with black stripes? Why, oh why couldn’t he have been born a stallion? Or a tiger? Zebra was sad. Other zebras didn’t seem to care; they had other “important” things to worry about like water, food, mating and tigers.
One day, he snuck on to a giant ship to get away from it all. Zebra turned green from the seasickness, red from the sunburn and ultimately blue from the cold. “Where am I?” he wondered. He looked around and saw icebergs and polar bears. “Hey you!” he yelled out meekly below, “It must be awesome to be a polar bear; you’re not confused like me!”
Polar Bear stuck his head from the glacial water below, “Are you kidding me? Under all this white fur, I’m pink – talk about confusing!” SPLASH! And he was gone.
Zebra paused for a moment. Could it be that he’s not the only confused animal out there? Overhead, he saw a man pointing down at him from a helicopter. “I choose you!” the man yelled. Zebra felt a pinch in his neck and blacked out.
Upon waking, Zebra saw a man with sunglasses and people holding black umbrellas surrounding him. The sun tingled Zebra’s skin. It was warm again; there were trees everywhere and lush green grass. “Where am I?” Zebra asked, “And who are you?”
“I am Your Friend, OW!” then he struck a funny pose. “Welcome to my ranch! I couldn’t help but overhear your ponderings about who you really are, Zebra.” Zebra was confused.
“Your mom called me,” he explained.
“Look , Zebra, it’s good that you think about more than just what ‘grown ups’ tell you. Here, you can ponder, wonder and wander all you want! In the end though-” he broke out in a falsetto voice, “It don’t matter if you’re black or white!” Zebra felt a smile tug at his mouth.
And with that, Zebra was content. For all he cared, he was a skinny, short-haired, vegetarian, albino tiger. Some days he wore a black t-shirt to match his black stripes.
