Spoiler different shades- Jon Renteriawhen I was born I was white, the brilliant color of light
but I cried in my bed, and so I turned red
green was always the reason. and so I called it the color of treason.
the ordeal made me blue, and so I lost my hue
but at this point the purity had past, and what was once white was now just a light shade of grey
im not the first to raise this mast. it seems to me as though it happens every single day.
colored in by the world around us. do we really have a choice? the question I propose is thus. do we even have a voice?
what is right and what is wrong. teach me how to sing this song. teach me so that the fear may subside, and that I may swallow my pride and chose a side
a side colored just like me.
Spoiler Serene desireCalm expression hovering, underlying troubles
That blouse purer than snow
Coldly stealing stares but rejecting hope
Not a moment of peace, for it too restlessly uneasy
The dark tone from below, creeping up
Seemingly perfect yet disconcerting
Feelings are mildly torn, only a breathless grip
Pink atmosphere diffuses into the gray inner mind
Is there still something or not anymore?
Spoiler They'd Gone to War
Days dawn in a blaze of crimson glory.
Golden light gathers on the edges of life
And makes everything more.
In the endless time of now
Only sight has meaning.
Yellows bleed to orange when the fires come
And dark grey smoke floats by on gentle breezes.
Solid red bricks break down as buildings collapse,
Coating everything in dusky shades of dirt.
The greens of life covered by light grey ash
Leaves nothing pure.
Bright uniform blues are dull in wan light.
Crimson blood floods dirty pavement
Running across streets to mirror the dawn.
As the sun shines bright glory across the land,
Golden light struggles for clarity
Trying to hide the ugly colors of life.
They'd gone to war.
Spoiler You can't see the light~See some colours and you can see the light
Eat some shrooms you know I can zoom
You can't see the same thing in my sight?
Than honestly just colour me confused
You can't see you must be colour blind to the hue
If you can't see you must like fishing and staring at the blue
Darkness darkens you but the light will let you choose
The brightness of light will take weight off your shoes
Spoiler Act 1: Red Herring
My canvas, skill that others take for granted
Drink red wine finger prints up on the chalice
All but the pinky, Just for the wedding right?
Independence, just for the red and white?
You don't see pink if it ain't Otis Redding right?
She is moist, pink, red and white
When exposed to light, the rose blooms
Her rose only blooms in dark rooms
I feel light blue when I get to see her full moon
See draws whenever she hears Car Tunes
Hands up on the skin, all up in the melanin
Genuine elegance with the skill to seduce presidents
In between her thighs and I feel a bit of weakness
Do you know what's behind victoria's secret?
Spoiler ColorblindMy very emotions ripped from my eyes.
What were blue and red.
Now grey and dead.
She was gone, no reasons, no goodbyes.
The blue of her eyes, gone.
The red of her lips, gone.
The white of her smile, gone.
The brown of her skin, gone.
No woman looks as bright.
All seem faded and grayed in comparison.
Spoiler My Color,Your ColorHidden beneath several shades of clouds--darker whiter and all
Thousands of stars twinkle in many colors by nightfall
Red; your blood, your spirit, your bravery
Ablaze in your every step and erases your life's worry
Green; Mother Nature, plants, down to earth, relaxation
Yielding the peace of mind and balance of the soul in moderation
Blue; lift your chin up and you see it in the air and look down, in water
Essential elements in the universe, providers of perpetual tranquility as ever
Yellow; housing warmth and playfulness like little children upon seeing
Waking the desire of frolicking
Pink; love that gladdens my heart, makes it beat faster, delights me when it caresses me with affection
And, yet, it can make me forget about everything, put heart and mind in disarray and throw the world around me in oblivion
With love I found another color inside so warm, giving me optimism and confidence in high range
And that's the lovely Orange
Life is choices
Life is colors
Life is choices of colors
Hundreds and thousands of gradation
With different tones and harmonisation
Be as one theme the color of life
Life is colors, so
Color your life with any of your choosing
For you are the Painter
Spoiler White to RedPure and so white
“You’ll make the perfect bride”, they said.
Pride filled my sight
Many years I kept up my head
An angel in their eyes
A daughter that they want
They put up their sons to rise-
In front of me to flaunt
“She can do no harm”
“Listens so obediently”
“The sweetest thing you’ll see”
The words skipped along the streets
A man grabbed my arm
Different than those previously
I screamed and tried to flee
The man took me to his sheets
Red replaced the white
My purity taken
Darkness took the light
My soul shaken
The smiles have left
The love has disappeared
Treated as the theft
My image smeared
The perfect bride I am not
The daughter they do not want
Obedience I have fought
My actions are nonchalant
Overcome with dread
An angel falls
All because white turned red
Voting lasts for two weeks until the 12th of August.
