Paint Me

I see the picture
There on the wall
Painted in black and white
With a girl who stands by her family
No matter what

Let me give you a clean white paper

Why don’t you pick up the paintbrush
Use blue for my arms
Because of my freedom to write
Use purple for my head
For the peace I want to find
Use red for my feet
For all the struggle I have been through
Filled with scars to resemble strength
And paint my hair
Yellow
For the bright things I aspire

As for my heart and my vagina
Paint it black
Not for darkness or damage
but for the rare opportunities that others get to see it

Paint me alone
Because I am my own person
Paint me colorful
I am everything in one
Paint who I am, the real won
I am not just black and white
