I remember hearing that God gets
offended when you walk pass
the color purple and don’t acknowledge
Well, if that’s the case, God is pissed at
You see, I am that color purple.
The color purple that u continue to
The color purple that u just leave
standing here wondering what for?
The color purple who is slowly losing
as I begin to fade into this rain.
Rain, storms, clouds are all around me
why should I not change from my
illustrious bright tone to this mediocre
I mean what’s the point of being the
if I can’t catch your attention?
Running around, jumping when u say
cooking when u say go…
is this what I should be doing?
I mean, the color purple is a hard color
So, why do you do it so easily?
Why do you not see the royalty? The
Are you too busy chasing these reds,
yellows, and greens
to even notice me?
These colors that can be so easily
These colors that can change with a
flick of the light?
Do you not see how bold I am?
How beautiful I am not matter how dark
I am the color purple.
How dare you ignore me.
How dare u do it so easily as if I am not
When those reds and yellows fade,
I am the one you call on.
But as soon as you get your fill,
I am kicked to the side
because that new shade of gray has
caught your eye.
But it’s okay.
One day, I will be somebody else’s color
Somebody’s only one.
No more jumping and flailing just to
receive your attention.
What is so easy for u to overlook
will not be so easy for the next.
So I will be bold
and stand tall.
Because I am the color purple
and I command it all.
