What the colours meant

I was feeling childish and petty

And I didn’t feel like telling

What the colours meant

 

They meant more than one thing

To me at least. I thought why

Should I say what they meant

 

Into consideration must me taken

The context and location

To know what they meant

 

To most they meant nothing

The colours simple pretty

And nothing by them meant

 

Or maybe they were telling

The people already knowing

What the combination meant

 

Subtle Signs

Let slip subtle signs

No one sees, OR

They pretend they HAVE

NOT seen.

Colours, words, silences

They IGNOR or miss

THEM. The signs

That could have told

A story TOGETHER.

Be open to the words

They don’t bite

THEY can’t

They’re WORDS aren’t they?

Or are they more

‘Do we need them?’

YOU ask

If THEY

Bring people together

Then why not let them

Bring ACCEPTANCE

We have a NEED

To explain, to categorise

Don’t WE

All just want to belong?
