I remember hearing that God gets offended when u walk pass
the color purple and don’t acknowledge its beauty.
Well, if that’s the case God is pissed at you.
You see I am that color purple.
The color purple that u continue to ignore.
The color purple that u just leave
standing here wondering what for?
The color purple who is slowly losing her shade
as I begin to fade into this rain.
Rain, storms, clouds are all around me so
why should I not change from my
illustrious bright tone to this mediocre shade?
I mean what’s that point of being the color purple
if I can’t catch your attention?
Running around, jumping when u say so,
cooking when u say go…
is this what I should be doing?
I mean the color purple is a hard color to ignore.
So why do you do it so easily?
Why do you not see the royalty? The beauty?
Are you too busy chasing these reds, yellows, and greens
to even notice me?
These colors that can be so easily transformed.
These colors that can change with a flick of the light?
Do you not see how bold I am?
How beautiful I am no matter how dark or light?
I am the color purple.
How dare u ignore me.
How dare u do it so easily as if I am not your everything.
When those reds and yellows fade,
I am the one u call on.
But as soon as you get your fill,
I am kicked to the side
because that new shade of gray has caught your eye.
But its okay.
One day, I will be somebody else’s color purple.
Somebody’s only one.
No more jumping and flailing just to receive your affection.
I am the color purple and I command attention.
What is so easy for u to overlook
will not be so easy for the next.
So I will be bold
and stand tall.
Because I am the color purple
and I command it all.
