What Color (Is Your Heart) - Poem by Eric Cockrell

i dont care what color
your skin is... just dont care!
what color is your heart?

red, raw, and beating with passion?
deep purple, covered with bruises?
layered in greens, life and sustaining,
turning brown with time?

or grey as soot and death,
diseased with apathy!

    Ah, the colour of a heart. An auditor's is grey, cold and silent. Like their suits. (Report) Reply
