I see color
I see black and brown and yellow and white
I see eyes the color of hazelnuts or the deep black of the night sky, resplendent with the twinkling of stars, clear ocean green waters and deep blue lakes
I see intricate kinks in hair, the silk velvet curls, straight, jet black, bourbon, copper and gold
And I see lips
Full, thin, pouty, mouthy
I look deeper..
I see blood red running through
Heart, lungs, marrow in perfect sync
Muscles that strain the same at labour
Hands that clench the same in rage and give the same in love
I look deeper still...
And I see strength, and character
I see hopes, dreams, struggle, purpose, different; each one
I see roads traveled, roads untraveled
Bridges built and burned
I see a past filled with pain, a future equal parts promise and despair
And I hear you ask from your soul's depth
"who am I? "
And as I listen, I hear the universe whisper
PS. I have made a few edits to this from it's original form. On reading it just now, it felt incomplete, and probably still is to be honest.
