Color Blind

You seem to live in black and white
Never smile
Never laugh
You work day and night

Can't you see the world around you?
Or are you blind to the brilliant color
The yellow of the sunshine
The vibrant green of life

Happiness is bright
And sadness solemn blues
But you show no emotion
A boring life you choose

Why don't you see what I see
Why can't you genuinely smile?
I do not understand your mind
Are you color blind?

    Dave Loggins sang a song called The color of the mood I'm in. Yes, you'll know me by the color of the mood I'm in. Well if I'm gray, it's a sad sad day. Call em' and tell em' to carry me away. Cause, you'll know me by the color of the mood I'm in. Yeah! You'll know me by the color of the mood I'm in. Have a rainbow day Jacque. :)

    There's one questionable item in the second line of your third verse: The word "solum" is defined as an upper strata layer of new soil in a soil profile. I cannot see how that word fits into your line. Everything else looks good with both descriptiveness and rhyming.
