The Black, the White, the Colorful by Charmaine

The Black and White

We block
streams of impulses, we stop
drops of rebelliousness, and hold off
tears of creativity
to act as we would “normally”.

We shield
ourselves from chaos, we conceal
ourselves from randomness, we seal
ourselves from speciality
to act as we would “normally”.

We run
dodging the unknown, we shun
slivers of uncertainty, we flee from
what might or could not be
to act as we would “normally”.

The Colorful

We embrace
We don’t know
We are uncertain

We welcome the floods of curiosity
greeting the impulses we have yet to predict
we shake hands with what the world throws at us
and live, day to day, painting our souls
with the strokes of the world.

A never ending sand bottle
Filled being filled with the bits and pieces
of life. Incomplete,
unfinished,
always changing.
