Colors - Poem by Lubna Hazeem

Tell me, which one is blue?
The sky or the sea for you?
The world is sinking in gloom
It has been a lonely afternoon

Tell me, which one is dark?
My face or a dimming star?
Everything seems so scarred
We are merely splitting apart

What if the truth was never so pure?
What if none of us were ever so sure?
What if there was just a little bit more?
Than a color for each of us to endure

Tell me, where is the roof
And where is the ground?
Now we are upside down

Please, give no excuse
No use denying it now
They're tarring you out

Seeping the colors through
A spyglass to release truth

Every color is made of light
Every color reflecting bright
We are all shining tonight
We are all shining tonight

You're never alone
Never on your own
That is all I know

Oh, it feels so cold
I want you to hold
That is all I know

Be my color, my cover
In the stream of lovers

I declare you, my love
And now we'd rise up

With you, love we'd rise
Above the stream of light
No longer slaves to our divide
We're free to join colors tonight
