Fills empty abysses

With joy

And life

It transforms

Simple black and white pictures

To portraits of

Warmth and light

The former hole

Of mystery becomes

A portal of

Clarity and beauty

Blank, soulless paper

Is brought to life

With the easy solution of

Crayons and a smile

Why can't

A dull meaningless

Life be colored in

By a small hand scribbling

Why hasn't

My soul

Been brought

To life yet?
