Truth is Colorless



DAY-2 OctPoWriMo-2015



Color bleeds
In different shades
Sometimes the skin
Oozes a dozen sores
Camouflaging feelings.
Some love, some hate
With measured emotions,
Counting the number of shades
Light brown, dark brown
Darker shade and pitch black
Contemplating the variations-
Did color measure the soul?
Did truth change as seasons?
Or did the creator played foul?
Maybe humanity needs
To understand that
Beauty is skin deep.



This scene had me glued to my seat.I did close my eyes. I might have watched this movie umpteen times and this court scene left me speechless.

  8. This poem is like a kaleidoscope of image and emotion . . . all shifting as our perspectives change, challenging, questioning, confronting diversity, recognizing our common humanity.

  11. It seems that society has gotten worse rather than better about seeing a person's true worth rather than judging them by their external appearance. I loved the message here.
