Colorblind, poetry written by Tylia Flores at



written by: Tylia Flores



Don’t they see that I’m just me?,

Not the chair that is built behind me,

Why can’t they see I’m just a woman who loves to express herself through her passion,

Why can’t the world see my abilities for what they are,

instead of all the labels that make me stand out,

Handicap disabled unable,

all the labels that make us all colorblind in society

I wish people would see all the abilities that make me into a rainbow,

I wish people would open up their eyes and see I’m just a human,

and not the chair that is built behind me and the wheels that I use for my legs,

I wish people would see my true colors
