The Four Silhouettes -a story of transformation ~Joelle Warden

We are the four silhouettes
Shame.
Darkness.
Undefined.
Nondescript.
We cower in the corners under pictures and paintings of beautiful faces.

We are the four silhouettes.
To never converse and never wake.
Without color, we are nothing.
Only shadows.
Only dreams.
So much detail wasted on black and white.

We are the four silhouettes.
Good for nothing, bad for everything.
“Look down in shame, Darkness.”
“Face toward the dark, Undefined.”
“Be black and white, Shame.”

“ALL OF YOU BE QUIET!”
Nondescript’s first bold words.
“We must stand tall.”
“One day we will get the color we deserve.
We will become who we are meant to be!”

We are four silhouettes.
Proud and free.
Who wake at the dawn and sleep under the stars.
Bold and wild.
True beauty.

We are the four silhouettes.
Transformed and complete.
“We are not just black and white.
We are B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L.”

We are the four silhouettes.
Proud.
Light.
Understood.
Detailed.
We stack a top the others for all of time.

Upon seeing this image my 10 year old daughter wrote this. She continually stuns me.
