What’s read and white, and in plain sight
except when it’s not there,
tossed around, but not put down,
and doesn’t have a care?

What’s black and blue when in plain view,
but green when it’s put down;
never going anywhere
except to where it’s found?

What’s pink and tan…

And so it is… they waste away in the darkness of eternity…

There in the darkness they wither away,
not knowing peace, nor the light of the day.
Knowing no beauty, their worries abound
as they cry out for help, not making a sound.

For off in the distance, it all matters not.
What once brought them joy, is best, all forgot,
for into…
