What Color Would You Have Me Be?

Momma had a hue

that was mostly blue

Daddy wore dead red

most of the time

I tried so hard to be yellow

but turned purple instead

Ahh…

but red and blue

do make purple,

don’t they?

Torn up purple-

the color of

the bruises

you can’t see…

Chin up purple-

the color of

my given royalty.
