Colors of a Sucker

Spinning color wheels...
that's all of us.

individually & collectively...
colorful and bright, dull and dark
and sometimes void of all color.
Some folks are even filled with light.
Most of us have tinsel
spinning and ever-changing
with a core which is constant in that it is there...
if for nothing else,
but to hold together our strings, strands or ribbons
of who we really are and who we seem to be together.

Sometimes the colors dim, fade
sometimes seeing things through hazy shades
not seeing things so vividly
Sometimes one color spills over onto another...
and another and another.
sometimes that color is an absence of color

and sometimes those strings, strands and ribbons are really cardboard wands
Yup, sometimes we are just a sucker

But suckers are good...and colorful
why else would they give them out at the bank?

'Make Peace with the Past so that it doesn't screw up the Present...which just a moment ago, was the Future.'

"This TV is old, the color is fucked, do you see the difference in the shades?
But the green is still close to green, my love
And I believe we are the same."

The closing line in the post found its way into my heart.

:) Your quote makes me smile.
'My pink is your yellow & my red is your green...we live in full color, don't we?'

Orhan... the closing line sums all of that rambling up :)

Oh, I was so enthralled with the colours and the content and the quote--

(Mel)...Life really is full color and so are we, even though sometimes, some folks want to 'paint it black.'

But I see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that's why I love you
So don't be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful,
Like a rainbow

She!!! Hahaha, yes she did sing it just write! And, you know, it's interesting, I have someone who is very special to me that is color blind and legally blind & to see what he sees is to see the most ornate colors imaginable. xoxox
