Last Night I Had a Dream

Last night I had a dream
I dreamt that cotton candy filled the sky,
taking forms of different creatures
depending on the eye;
Kool-Aid filled the seas,
and that sweet, refreshing drink
was all the red pigment our children ever had to see.
And skittles;
well, let's say that you could literally taste the rainbow.

I dreamt that life was sweet.

But you see--
this dream that I dreamt last night as I slept
was nothing but a bunch of colors.
Colors that gave me hope of a world that would never be.
Because in the end,
everything is simply black and white
with fifty shades of grey.
