The Checkered Man

Criss Cross, Criss Cross

Ying and Yang, black and white

Cloudy and clear, hot and cold

Painted by dark sentiments

Painted by ridicule

Painted by mockery

Painted by self-doubt

Painted by double standards

Painted by could’a, would’a, should’a

Erase the paint of self-doubt

Blot out the  words that pierce

Wash away the  sordid memories

For you are a masterpiece in the making

You are not checkered, you are whole

 

Paint
