Colorful

I was white
A colorless soul
when I was born
Some said new life is green
Time passed by
I glided along
Happenings happened
I had been painted on
Some painted me black

removed it with white
giving me grey

Some gave me red
saying love is blind
I went through blues
then I got lots of hues
Now they call me colorful
Who else could remain dull
Spreading the enchantment
I realized
Life is now complete
When before I was only a plain white...

  3. some see colors thru eyes and some thru words and here u try to see both ways!
    good try for mixing of colors-words.
    but, am not able to get one thing... are these 2 lines are together...
    --I was white
    A colorless soul--.... if so..

    white is not colorless!! .. in fact white is the mixture of all colors; balanced mix of all primary colors; which is very difficult to make/create it manually.. .. only nature can do this.
    may be u had some other meaning/thought behind writing this way....right//

    1. Thanks Pratibh for dropping by! The white here means something which has not yet been painted with experiences. Like an untouched pure sheet of paper, unmarked ready to be painted...
