Gray


You are neutral. a hipster of sorts,
you don’t want to be a show off nor invisibleGray Venice
the middle child of color,
gray
Assertive, yet soft
you’re a color without color
a soul without function
grey

Some say you are noble, regal, and firm like stone
others see you as dull, worthless, foggy in the snow.

I ask, my fair color
do you want to blend in?
do you want to stand out?
do you want to fight or
are you thoughtful?

Whether you are friend or foe,
keep being grey
for without you
many are not them
for without you
the world is not the same…
