A Colourful Life.

Black is the colour which stands for night
Clear is transparent way out of sight

Green is for nature all around she stares
With Brown mixed in to give her some flare

Red is the colour you see when you’re mad
Lit up with rage when you felt you’ve been had

Blue is the ocean we sail upon
Or the sky above on a Midsummer’s Dawn

Yellows for Banana shaped like a bow
Or a coward on the run with nowhere to go

Gold is the colour the gem of them all
With enough in your pockets your trousers will fall

Pink is our skin on a cold winter’s day
When you wore nothing warm the price you must pay

Orange is the fruit of the same name
Silvers the trophy for winning the game

And White is for pure a virgin in wait
or a snowman’s coat all covered in flakes.

A Colourful Life.

Artist's Description

Something I wrote whilst living in Sweden 12 years ago in 1997.
I worked out many years before that if you write something for the public or Society in general then you should write so that ‘’everybody understands’’
When only the educated or literally minded people understand what you have written then how is that a good thing unless you are prejudice against certain members of society it doesn’t make sense.
If you were giving a speech to an audience of 10.000 people why would you speak and only use words that only half your audience understands, that would be a waste of breathe and space,
but if you were to talk and use words that were understood by all 10.000 people in your audience then surely you have done a better job in capturing those you are trying to get your message across to.

Rudyard Kipling’s ‘’If’’ is a fine example of great literature and poetry it has been voted the greatest poem of all time,everyone understands the wording of ’’If’’
What makes a great poem is something that people can relate to and understand something that touches you something you won’t forget
great poems you remember because you understand the words and meaning, poetry doesn’t mean anything if the people reading it don’t understand what you have written.
