What We Make

QUEEN ME A COLOR

 

We are all Queens
Red Queen, Blue Queen, Purple Queen
Pink. “What color Queen am I” you ask
I am a Blue Queen, cool as the ocean water.
Beautiful as the sky above. I am a Red Queen, Like
The Fire that Flows through my veins
I am a Purple Queen, filled with royalty and elegance
I am Pink, loving unconditionally and as
Nurturing as a flower to a bee. I am a
Green Queen, fresh and durable as
The greenest grass.
I am a White Queen with a soul
Filled with purity, innocence and simplicity
Red Queen, Blue Queen, Green Queen, Yellow—
No. I am a Black Queen
Sophisticated, filled with elegance and grace
A black queen with the strength of 10 stallions
A black queen who stands for what’s right
A black queen who shall mother a civilization
And teach them to never compromise what’s in their hearts.
A Black Queen, A Black Queen
What color are you?
