Hue – A Poem Written by Eliza Segiet, Translated by Ula de B.

Hue

Written by Eliza Segiet
Translated by Ula de B

 

This is not a color game
everyone knows that
green means the road is free,
yellow is caution, something’s approaching,
red — stop.

Other hues
don’t warn, don’t inform,
they really bother some
– black to them is more than just murk.
It can’t be hidden under any coat.

At times it is a curse of their existence,
Nevertheless they try showing,
telling:
We’re the same as others.
The color of our skin
can’t be a call
to kill and to destroy a human.

It’s not a color game,
it’s life.
