Favorite Quote:
"All you need is love"


Then the blind girl asked me,
"what is color?
It's supposed to be wonderful..."
and I could not answer.
The deaf girl asked me
"what is music?
It's supposed to be wonderful."
and I could not answer.
So the hungry man asked me
what it was to be full
and the woman
in the wheelchair
asked what it was to dance.
And to all,
I could not answer.

The author's comments:
One day I was being all deep and poetic and asking myself stuff like "What is love?" easy. "What is life?" no problem. "What is color?" I... don't know.
So I wrote this poem.
