Black and white

August 19, 2008
By Lkay C, Milton, OH

I looked in the mirror and saw a nobody,
Even when you told me that wasnt true.
My eyes could only see the black and white bad things
When they should have seen much more.
I was always thinking I was ugly and dull,
standing next to some one like you.
Always shining, smiling making me feel like a broken pencil replaced with one new.
But when you told me I was beautiful,
My heart began to beat.
The world around me suddenly blossomed with color like a childs coloring book.
You showed me the raindbow I had inside,
by bringing them out to touch the world like a sun rising on a hill.
