The Color

There are many colors that I see
But black is the main color in my family
I love the way the color stands out like a slave living in the Deep South
I've watched this color travel like leaves
This sweet black color which belongs to me


The author's comments:
I wrote this poem because I begin to think about my ancestor during their time of slavery.

This is really good, I like how it's short and simple- but really powerful conveyed through only few words. You're an excellent writer. Keep it up :)
