Don't look back (don't ever do that)
Don't look back
don't ever do that
the past lives there
with its wild despair,
its puddles of pity
all dark and gritty.
There's joy there too,
and patches of blue.
The mean ol' reds,
where you lost your head.
A kaleidescope of feeling
to keep you reeling.
Be where you stand,
see what's at hand:
marvels to see,
new ways to be,
colors so cle...

Many people discuss white privilege.
Other folks just can't fathom it.
Some will think they know.
When you live it each day
in your heart and bones,
what is there to think?
White folks can snooze here.
Now let's talk light privilege.
Here we mean shades of color.
Lighter shades are easier accepted.
There was a dark girl in my Junior High School.
She used Nadilon...

The color of water and sky,
Symbolizing airiness and lightness
. The color that makes me fly,
Bringing serenity and calmness.
There is peace in my soul
When blue color I see.
It’s my confidence and parole,
With this color, I feel free.
Everything divine is in this color
. For me, it is always solar
. It creates an atmosphere of trust,
It tells me when to be just....

Roses are grey
violets are grey
no I’m not a dog
just can’t get colors to stay
I am colorblind
no big deal, just lots grey
I don’t mind it, truly
it’s what I’m used to, day after day
Something’s always missing
is it blue? Maybe red.
How should I know the difference?
my senses are dead
I’ve heard of lavender
A light but loving color

Black and Blue
Black and blue
A bruise's hue
And the colors of many others
Look up at the sky
On a stormy day
As the clouds cry
Blue and gray
Your silhouette black
Against the flash of the Lightning above
It's courage you lack
And your hopes fly away with the dove
It's not the lion, I'm afraid, that carries the pride
But the Lightning that paralyzed you as it bide...

color used to be a distant memory.
I had seen the world in black and white for so long
I couldn't even tell you the shades in a rainbow.
I had gotten used to playing along
when people would say
"look at how bright! look at how wonderful! look at how vivid! look at how beautiful the world is!"
I would smile
yeah, it's amazing
when all I saw were dismal shades of grey and bl...

Time goes on
The world does too
Our Nature grows and dies
Our technology expands and flies
We manifest and destroy
To make ends meet
Even with passing days
We forget about the increasing heat
Or the decreasing ice sheets
Nothing seems important
To global tyrants and corporations
But money and power
At the cost of decreasing our showers
We accept it whic...

Old & New
Shuttles soar with seemingly unprecendented motion.
The children's eyes gaze to the floor.
The ground is green and brown and yellow.
The world below cannot bellow.
Sing and hum its' tune.
A melody, sweet melody.
A rotation for all of you.
Its' sweet chillness pressed against the nostrils,
Its' gentle warmth against the skin.
Allow the gaze of the star above,

A silent, night sky is loud with the city’s glow.
Reflections upon the water; lead thoughts below.
the humming is fuel to the fire,
for the electric, funeral pyre.
Colors show who you really are around here,
there is no time for fear.
Or is there? - where’s little sister?
If you see her, say I miss her.
Rain beating down like laughter on my ears;
