Color me the way you want...!


I see you coming every day to meet us,
But never do you come close to me.
I know not why,
May be because I'm white,
And others, are colors galore.

I am sometimes prodded by unworthy passers-by,
I know not what my mistake is.
I return the next season,
Blooming dauntlessly.


I see you have grown old,
But something in you is still the same,
You still ignore me,
And I still feel the pain.

I may be white,
I may be colorless,
I may not be pleasing and appealing,
But I am here, waiting for you.
Waiting for the day you would touch me,
Waiting for the day my setting dream would see a sunrise.


Color me the way you want,
Color me Red, Blue, Pink or Cyan,
Color me the way you want to see me,
I am here, only for you.

P.S.: This is my first attempt at poetry ever in life. Please bear with me if I have made any mistake.

What I think of it might be completely unrelated to what it actually is. But I thought it was about an easel talking to his painter who has now left painting.

It urges him to colour him. Make a beautiful painting, just something :) Just to make it feel like it belongs to him...

Thank you Arjun,

I'm feeling so glad that this has come out so well.

Yes, the one who is white is unique, can take any color...this quality is only possessed by the white color.

Cheers

*PEACE*
