The colors that fill my eyes are pure.
I talk to my friends, but we disagree.
In times of conflict, I hold my tongue.
Rain falls around us and the answers wash away.
I haven’t found anyone to take my side.
It is impossible that I am wrong.
I have written my argument in bold letters.
To the people that hate me,
I scorn your derision and judgment.
The colors in my heart will never fade.
