    Go Ahead call me Colored!
    It shows your lack of creativity
    Because you only use one crayon,
    Black!
    But beware of this crayon box
    You try to put me in
    Because I’m in living color
    Other colors are bound to rub off on me
    Yes, I too am white
    Can't see it in my eyes but Thank God
    For putting two black dots there
    So I can still see my roots

    Go Ahead call me Colored!
    But you can only
    Draw my outline with this marker
    You will never fill between my lines
    Or know that I am more than one simple color

    Go Ahead call me Colored!
    I’ll let your words cut me a little
    For you to watch my red spill out
    Run down my arms and through my legs to
    Fill between the lines
    So you’ll see the colors of my ancestors
    That sung the Blues
    Didn’t yield to the Mean Green but chased dreams
    As they picked the white coton,
    Underneath the yellow sun until they turned pale blue
    for their souls Fly Away and paint with all the colors of the wind
    Because they had Faith when they had no crayons
    Were colorful even when they where nicknamed "Colored"
    So Go Ahead Call me Colored
    Because I too am my ancestors
    Colored & Colorful!

    The rainbow colors us, we're just limitless that way. I enjoyed your pen, especially as the momentum built and you let those colors fly. Great write.

    Black = strength..power..boldness
    White= emptyness.. nothingness.. invisible (some bugs cant even see white)..
    I dont know black seems good to me its everything and it consumes/over powers all...

    Nice poem
    :SuN011:

    Oh I know you probably cant see that white..so highlight it and watch it turn BLACK..lol

    This is a great flow
    It has good creativeness
    I like how you found the colors
    In the Black

    Within Black are all colors
    Being the base
    Absorbing and containing all others

    ==============
    Is this why we have such flair? So Passionate and creative. We absorb, and then we radiate ( emit ) the energy into or lives.
    ==========
    As a black color surface absorbs the light particles that hit it, the surface's particles get excited (excited particles = higher temperature).
    The color black attracts heat and absorbs it making the object that is black warmer, because the particles have warmed up and are moving faster.


    In physics, a black body is a perfect absorber of light, but by a rule derived by Einstein it is also, when heated, the best emitter.


    Black is the color of authority and seriousness. Black Robes. Black Belt in Martial Arts etc…
