White

“You’re newness.”
“You are a light so bright
And oh my god, your potential…”
“You’re one and you’re many,
And the way you hold the rainbow together?”
“Effortlessly light as a feather”
“I pick you cause you fit so well,
My God, you’re essential!”
“You’re the end of every fight,
You’re peace and calmness.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m White.
I no longer have a voice.
I have been constantly talked over.
With me there’s always a choice,
I’m a contrast,
I’m a freakin’ easy option.
Easy to get, easy to do away with. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You find someone too loud for your taste?
Add a bit of me for balance
And I’ll fade out the extra
To calm your nerves
To soothe your eyes.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You met someone too dull?
Keep me on the side
And I’ll make sure they shine
Amidst my dreary lack. ⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You got too bored
Of the same old thing?
Pick up that brush and paint me
In all the shades of your fantasies. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And when you’re done,
do me a favor,
The next time you see me,
Just freakin’ LET. ME. BE.
