by Lara La Bryer

You can see me
What color am I?
And what does that make me?
Who does that make me?
Now you can continue on
Now that we know what color I am
And who I am
And a whole new world is lost,
And our lives may have been better,
But we are lost.
The world is lost, and it has always been
Not because I am white, or black...
But because I am purple
And we are all lost
And we do not see
Our true colors
Is it fear...
Or ignorance that makes us this way?
Ignore me now for I am purple
And you are green,
And now we know this.
So we remain lost.
