Bold My Colors…the who I am

Bold My Colors
Bold My Colors…the who I am

Bold the colors of my essence,
yet bland the colors of my being,
so often hidden with the fears of circumstance,
and true to self a double edged sword,
when misunderstood by many.

Judgement placates truth in temporary stance,
and mud may stick from vile tongues,
but I should not limit my colours,
for fear of what may come,
just for the sake of reprieve.

Humility begs forgiveness,
for prideful self earns not display,
and I struggle with ambiguity
when I must be who I am regardless,
and those who reject their own place to find.

Bold are my colors and my intention,
and those who cannot see are blind to me,
so why do I truncate my will to standing by,
when ill presents itself and life awry,
when truly I should stand firm for my belief.

God given this me, regardless of perception,
and I shall stand for the paradigm of love,
where no thought can overcome,
and peace in my heart shall reign
beyond the blame of those who hold onto malice.

    “God given this me, regardless of perception,
    and I shall stand for the paradigm of love,”

    Beautiful affirmation.

    Tony, these statements are very solid and show a strong belief in and love for Self. To live by this creed (is that the right word?) is honorable. One can be happy, content in life and help others when a self-affirmation such as this is firm. Great work my friend.

    Tony,

    This is a very pretty poem, and I did not know you had already used this beautiful, colorful picture on your poem before I used it on my very first poem I published here on TCE, “Glimpse Through a Child’s Eyes”.

    Your poem radiates with beauty more so than even this stunning picture.

    I can change my picture if you’d like.

    The picture doesn’t matter. We can all use what we like, the only time it would bug me is if anyone used the same picture in the current front page posts. So glad you enjoyed the poem Tamara. have a great day!
