Imagine

image

Imagine a world without color,
where light could only create black and white
and monochrome was the status quo.
A rainbow would appear in shades of gray
and a flower could only be recognized by shape.
Beauty would no longer be defined as bright
but a simple, unified dullness.

Imagine a world without color,
where a human was just a human.
No person could be defined by
the pigment of their hair
or the vibrancy of their eyes.
Humanity could not be divided
by the color of our skin
and the shades would be too close to separate.
Equality would be a commonality.

Imagine a world without color,
where variety could only be found
in shapes, textures, and sounds.
With less to distract your eyes,
your ears may finally be opened
and you will hear what you should have heard
long ago.

Imagine a world without color,
where the world might just be a little better.


*(Note: I started writing this poem thinking that I’d talk about how terrible a world without color would be, but it morphed into this instead. I quite enjoyed editing it. It was so much more me than it would have been if I had written what I’d meant to write.)
