Shades apart.


Fascinated with hues  
of colours so bright
I admired with awe 
at their beautiful delight.

The world looked so perfect
like some great scenery 
with shades of every kind
adorning art and imagery.

I longed to paint
but an amateur I was
I painted sweet smiles 
without any cause.

Condemned for my art
I was sentenced decree
or to be demeaned until
to join the league I agree.

A league of syndicates 
that cared not for scenic
rather painted characters
of a ruined picturesque .

The colours they splashed
with an evil aim
claimed lives of people
with frustration and shame.

The difference between us 
stood us apart
they painted with critics 
I painted with art.
