"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind." - Dr. Seuss

I can’t think, I just can’t
It’s too white, too bright, too clean
For the haul of my ideas, the messy, dirty slew of my random thoughts
All different hues and shapes
All so blatantly not white, non conformist
All so like me
Because I am not the snow, I am not white, and delicate, and vulnerable
I am fire; I am human lust for something so wonderful that it’s been labeled as fiction
The snow will try to smother me
And I will try to melt it

This was the prompt for day 15 of the 30X30 poetry challenge in which I will receive a prompt everyday for the month of April and my work will be published on their website.
