Black – Chroma of Wealth by Tola Ijalusi


I see colours.
deep dust brown
   Colour of Earth
crystal clear
   Colour of aqua
clean white
   Colour of snow
ranging rainbow
   Colour of fire
Colours of the world
I see them all at a sight.
But here is an imbue
a chroma of wealth
deeply spread across Earth
hue of our pride
    of our heritage
    of our land
    of our home
healthy colour of opulence
    my skin colour.
