My favorite colour is the skin you're are in,
And bright red for the blood signaling life flowing in your veins.
I use to think my favorite colour(s) were white, yellow, brown, and black; yes especially black till I learned no life lives there, only memorialized stories of Holocaust, bombings at Nagasaki & Hiroshima, genocide, xenophobia, immigration, and slavery, these colours represent hardships from hatred.
Sadden, i kept looking
then I saw it!
Dancing like angels
a spiritual dance
uttering vibrant overtures to the creator for life; it was Red!
Striking at first glance, beautiful as I stared, mesmerized by its energy it felt kindred as it's warmth melted into my pupils
Embers of truth, kaleidoscopic treasure buried in borrowed conduits design to contain it's splendor!
Viscous as it were Red spread it's ubiquitousness EVERYWHERE, capturing ordinary colors of white, yellow, brown, and black; yes even black...oxygenating their essence as abundance does lack
Red, the Savior
Red, the Redeemer
Red, the warrior
Red, the teacher
Red, the equalizer
Red, the connector
Red, the life giver!
Red, my favorite colour;
Red, the real colour of skin to me.
