red, white blue pt.3

red, white, blue

part 3.



love is

red,

white,

blue


coloring

my heart

in red,

words in blue

and no white


the independence

that i gain

so much pride

of being

the voice in

this country, America


and look at

me

brown skin

wise poetic soul

i am not an

American butterfly

or a star spangle bird


i am free

the blood of goodness

and i will rise

like fireworks


this red

this white

this blue


not just the flag

in the breeze

just me

holding my pride

in my hands


and


say,

"happy 4th"
