Dip me In

on

Dip me in a can of white
Immerse me in it till I drown
Then let me emerge as a new me
Killing a soul and birthing a color
Who is painted in your hue
Who is one of you, among you

Dip me in a can of white
Immerse me in it till I drown
Let my cries silence forever
As I gulp down tons of your tint
And change myself for your joy
Or maybe… for the love of my life

Dip me in a can of white
Immerse me in it till I drown
And pull me out for a breath of air
But it’ll be too late by then
For I’d have left my flesh behind
To unite with a God that sees no color

Dip me in a can of white till I drown
To unite with a God that sees no color

      3. Thank You.. Love
        to Go Where i am
        Welcome but some
        Folks Find it highly
        Offensive When Folks
        Respond Poetically
        From Soul like
        i am Trying
        To Get
        Something
        Rather Than
        Connecting to
        Another Child of
        God With Soul…
        Obviously
        You Write
        With Soul not
        Surprising you
        Welcome me Here…
        Thanks Again Yamini😊
        Your Poem was Truly
        Lovely standing
        Out in
        Inner
        Soul Truth👼
