    When you look at me
    What do you see?
    A person
    Or a color?
    Do I have a mind that I may form
    Ideas and creative thoughts?
    Or
    do I have arms that I may bring these
    Creative thoughts into reality?
    Do I have eyes to see the wonders
    Of the world?
    Do I have ears
    To hear the words
    Of great men and women
    Who inspire with words of motivation?
    Do I have a mouth that shall
    Allow me to speak the oracles of life
    Opening doors for those who have no hope?
    Do I have legs that will take me to those places
    Where others fear to tread?
    Do I bleed blood that is red
    When you look at me do you see yourself?
    Howbeit a different shade
    Nevertheless
    The same
    When you look at me
    What do you see?
    A person
    Or a color?
