Someone Erased It

Regina Puckett


I painted a portrait in my mind

A world where everyone is kind

I colored the sky in beautiful hues

I shaded the ocean in shades of blues

I penciled in love, peace and accord

I erased guns, bullets, arrows and a sword

I drew people listening to their brothers

I sketched babies wanted by their mothers

In my painting, no one was allowed to hate

Then someone erased it as if it was a slate
