Blindfolded Masses

I don't see shades of absorption
I live life with limitations
of vision

season's colors, different hues
yet what I feel creates values
for lifetimes

it's a matter of perception
that becomes high inspiration
for masses

they show you orange, suppress blue
Black, white are a canvas untrue
-illusions

they want to crush me with their might
I cast shadows on their highlights
-deemed classes
