Person of Colour

Person of colour is coherently germane,
He is never insane.

Some things about this person of colour may seem strange,
He is simple and he is yet to engage.

This person of colour loves the critics,
It is from them, he ticks.

This person of colour is natural,
And so, he is not a trial.

This person of colour loves to exchange
Ideas beyond his range.

This person of colour loves keyboard,
Tis with this he comes on board.

This person of colour is a charcoal- a black beauty.
This person of colour is me.

    Abdulhafeez, not to be insane, is not quite the image of one LOL, however I love the simple way you clarify all the streamers in you. This makes me want slip all them ideas right from underneath your nose. ha ha, how clever you are. At the end, you added the best of your canvas upon my eyes. I'm glad to fall at the smiles and grin at the end of your verse. You are lovely *Always & Forever xox~PD

    wow! I love and adore the charcoal colour you paint about yourself. My eyes are gleaming with the best trickery in mind. This will be my newest and favorite poem. Adding the black beauty of you to my favorite list. Your newest fan LUV~*~SKAT

    I am happy to get to know the colors of you which I am sure are many. Unfortunately we live in a World that often makes judgements only based on what is seen on the surface. The color each of us is born with informs our perspective unless we move beyond the obvious to the essential which can only be revealed by looking within and below the surface. Race and color is important because it is the way we connect to our World. You have connected here with your words.
