"Love sees roses without thorns."- German Proverb

Black is the color I see,
Its got control over me.
Black is one of the three,
It symbolizes death and mystery.
It has a mysterious beauty.

Red is the color I see,
Its inside of you and me.
Red is one of the three,
It symbolizes love and hate.
It thrives on the bodies.

White is the color I see,
Its difficult to come across.
White is one of the three,
It symbolizes purity and innocence,
It is easy to lose yours.

These are the colors I see,
They have me in awe,
The way they shape and move,
Leaves me in wonder,
Of what is to come in their beauty.
