What Colour Is You Canvas?

Colour Is Pride: True Colours

By Mike Singleton - MikeydredPublished 3 years ago Updated 11 months ago 1 min read

What Colour Is Your Canvas?

From White To Black , or Black To White?

A Single Colour Is A start For Others

A Base To Start From

To Build

A Picture of You

Or Me

I Start at White

You May Start At Black

I Add Red For Blood

With White It Drifts To Pink

Then Green for Grass and For Go

Blue for The Ocean

A Place To Go

The more shades

The More we become

The More We Paint Ourselves

The Colours of The Rainbow

On Your own Canvas

Painting You

Painting Me

Our Colours

Showing Who We Are


From Canvas

To Work of Art
