A Canvas of White

A Canvas of White

They want a world full of white, but what good is that?
White is not unique
White is not bold
White is all I've ever been told
White is "pure"
White is "clean"
Yet all white has ever been is mean
But why not color?
Color is not rude
Color does not judge
And color is not going to budge
Color is brilliant
Color is diverse
Color has been through much worse

White should not fear that color will taint,
For what is a canvas without any paint?
