I used to think that I couldn’t wear color.
And dreams were the only truth I could see.
And your thoughts of me were my thoughts of me.
And my language was like that of a bee.
My truth is in Color.
My soul is of Ardor.
And people are not as perfect as I envisioned them to be.
My legs dance in sync with the beat of my heart.
My soul is finally free.
And now I see that they are just colors.
Adorn and color every piece of Me!
