Color - Poem by Dahni

I come for the life
I see it in my heart
White of my eyes
I am black from sun crossing
deserts in life
my skin from earth and family
my passion is to touch and to be
Black upon me ignorance from afar
pain and fear in the faces of others
they fervently white and burn
I blackened and burn
all of us
blood red
here to just join hands
and embrace each other
in this life
