Green or Red
Green or red.
Alive or dead.
A difference of color
Could be a difference of life

Green is the color
Of grass and apples and
Leafs. Green is new but
Not old.

Red is the color of blood
And sad and demand. But
Also leafs in the fall and apples.
Red is the color of unhappiness.

Green is the smile on a gray
Day. Green is the opposite of a
Frown. Red is the rain on a beach
Day. Red is the kick when you’re down.

You definitely were getting somewhere. The beginning was good, but after about the second stanza, the poem started to get a little messy. It kind of seemed as if you were running out of what to say. I get the point of the poem, and it's a good one, but it's just a little unclear.
