Black Is

Black is sky so stars can shine
Tiger's stripes and butterflies
Black is brushed on sparrow's wings
Black is many things.

Black is writing on a page
Berries sweet and clouds that rain
Black is crying when you sing
Black is anything.

We shouldn't fear the things we know
And black is everywhere we go.
The color black is not unknown
'Cause black is blindness, even so...

Black is earth so green can grow
Wheels and roads that lead to home
Black is like a child in spring
Black is everything
Black is everything...
