Life's grey colours (poem)

Red of bloodshed, madness and rage,
Orange of fire, damage and destructions
Yellow of jaundice, battles and tests,
Green of money, envy and deceits
Blue of tears, bruises and fear,
Indigo of screams, prejudice and rejection,
Violet of liars, bitterness and assumption

Red of love, intimacy and passion,
Orange of fruit, joy and sweetness,
Yellow of sunshine, respect and smiles,
Green of trees, education and life,
Blue of sky, protection and care,
Indigo of rivers, acceptance and understanding,
Violet of meadows, light and freedom

Everyone is living in their own rainbow,
Everyone has pain, only some have relief,
Confusion of shades, contradiction of shines,
There is so much grey in yours, and in mine
