Colours Of My Skin. - Poem by Anzelyne shideshe

They say I have colours,
Patches of black and white,
I'm fine with them,
Invisibly problem free,
Comfortably satisfying.

They relate to them as,
Black and white stains,
I never knew black can stain,
Renowned colour of concept.

What is the issue with patches,
For me they relate to beauty,
Enhance the artistic within,
Kill boredom, revive life.

Black and white patches,
Culture they call it,
For me it's knowledge,
Colour has information,
Thus I see wisdom,
Being colourless.

Yes you might see stains,
Patches of black and white,
A cocktail if visible,
For me concept has it's initiator,
I'm colourless,
Colour is in my vision.

    i don't follow the whole poem, but it drew my interest. i'm glad you are comfortable with what you have vis a vis patches. to MyPoemList
    several 'personalities' (at least two i've heard of) in this country (U.S.) , who many would (or in years past would) call colored/coloured (now more likely called black) , including at one time Michael Jackson (singer) i believe, had 'patches'. so what? bri ;)

    True be comfortable with who you are and no matter your short comings you can still be
    A great person if you accept your patches and counteract on them!

    Kill boredom, revive life..............A truly positive thinking is reflected in this impressive poem.

    Wise words and a beautiful poem, we always place to much importance on what we see and not enough on our similarities. (Report) Reply

    A deep message driven here, the 2 shades described but the best comes out of the perception of colorless. (Report) Reply

    Very nice poem and lovely picture to accompany it. The color of our skin is not nearly as important as what is in our hearts. Our thoughts and feelings make us who we are.
    Thanks for sharing this poem.

    Thus I see wisdom,
    Being colourless.
    I'm colourless,
    Colour is in my vision.

    beautiful concepts and vision of colour and aesthetics. this is a new interpretation. thank you very much for this poem. tony
