MLMM Sunday Writing Prompt, April 11/2021 – FREEDOM
HERE, in this grey world
With my God given freedom
I dance, to bring colour to this dull grey world.
As I go through my routine, I realise how hard it is to change
The stubborn hold on this grey matter.
My feet bleed, my heart grows heavy,
I cannot stop, I must bring colour back.
I am one against the many
I feel the colour drain from me
Growing across the ground in an ever-increasing pool
Up along the tower, the buildings sparkle under sunlight
I am drained, I am colourless, I am grey
I am freedom…
