The Colors of Life

by PammyMcB

Brown is the color of a young man’s skin.
Green is the color of a jealous eye.
Yellow is the color of a cowardly soul.
White is the color of skin filled with hate.
Red is the color of blood spilled one dark day.
Blue is the color of a mother’s broken heart.

Brown is the color of soil that grows life.
Green is the color of grass beneath my feet.
Yellow is the color of the sun that births life.
White is the color of the clouds that bring rain.
Red is the color of a beautiful, fragrant rose.
Blue is the color of the clearest of all skies.

Nature is filled with all colors.
She does not discriminate.
Why should we?
