Identity #midnighthaiku

Am I black or white

If eyes that see no colour

Seek to define me?

There are rainbows in my soul

And my shadows hold the stars

    A fascinating poem for an unusual blend of stripes. One could suggest this is an ode to Brexit maybe??

    Time does not always allow such depth of vision, something we battle every day. Usually at the cost of progress!
