Colors of Life: A Chromatic Journey

Palette of Life 🎨🌈

In the heart of Chroma, where colors tell tales,
I dressed in hues that span my life’s scales:
Black, for the nights in marriage’s embrace,
And the void that echoed after its erase. 🖤

Red, for the love and the wars overseas,
Where bravery met loss that brought me to my knees. ❤️🔥
Gold for the glow in my children’s eyes,
Moments of pure joy that money can’t buy. ✨👶

Silver threads weave through my years of wisdom earned,
For calm amidst the storms that fiercely churned. 🌫️🕊️
Topaz sparkles for the highs amid the lows,
Lighting up my path where the dark shadow goes. 🔆🧡

Bullied in youth, a palette dim and cold,
Self-esteem frail, in whispered tales retold. 😔🌀
Yet here I stand in Chroma’s vibrant maze,
Wearing my spectrum, enduring all phase. 🌟🚶‍♂️

My colors clash, yet they dance in the light,
Reflecting a life of love, war, and plight. 🎭💫
In this city of hues, my story I tell—
Each shade a chapter, where heartache and joy dwell. 📘💔🎉
