daring challenges in red
burning desires of crimson
yellow stars of success
patriotism in red, while and blue
the pink of health
pastels soothing to the eyes
the refreshing green
magical silver that mesmerizes
sadness in gray
serenity in blue
innocence in white
mystery in lavender
violet that tickles
red orange flames of intense hatred
i am surprised!
combine all colors
you get the elegance of black
but it shrouds
it dims
devoid of vibrance
devoid of life
