Many people choose to see,
The world in black and white.
The other shades of vibrant colours,
Must be out of sight.

Life isn't just about,
Living your life to die.
It's about experiencing love,
And what it means to cry.

Many things are taken,
For granted and away.
If you see the one you love,
Say what you want to say.

Help someone once a day,
To show you really care.
Go crazy with your clothes,
And be silly with your hair.

Live your life to the fullest,
Be jolly and not mean.
'Cause when you do you will see,
The colours you've never seen.

Very, Very good poem. So true!
I only wish some people would just oppen thier eyes to how much they are missing. It's hard to see it tho, when you are so blinded by anger and hurt and pain. (Sighs) I just wish more people could really see what you are talking about!!
Loved the poem!!
