Beneath the Black and White
There lies a veil.
A veil masking every individual.
From a far-
Everything is clear,
Everything is open,
Everything colored in black and white,
His teeth a perfect white,
Creating an artificial smile
His suit a solid black,
But what is it concealing?
Step closer, closer, one more step.
Each grid is full of color- a blend of colors- true colors
Not artificial white
Nor artificial black
One painting, one person
A countless number of colors, a countless number of characteristics
All hidden beneath a veil- a filter
Allowing only certain traits -certain colors- to pass through
Blocking one’s true colors
Reflecting those select few- those meant for the world to see
Absorbing the others, hiding them beneath the black suit
A veil – a mask
How to sort out the truth?
When are one’s true colors revealed?
