Vitaly Kirkpatrick Poem: The Colors of Light – Dedicated to the Orlando Victims


Strangled by time for us to gain strength,
Judged by mistakes and judgments at length.
Lived just to live and fought a good fight
While painting the colors of unified light.

Hidden and seen while hiding within,
Winning and losing so we can win,
Dancing and singing so we can dance,
Changing the moments of lives in advance.

Sharing and carrying to care for all
For those who in need so they stand tall.
Crying and smiling while crying within;
Some people don’t care to our chagrin.

But we will stand tall because we all know
To battle for love is not battle at all.
Together we’ll live and some of us die
While painting the colors of unified light.
