You hear it all the time

The cliched,  "There are only two types of people in the world..."

But the world is more than just black and white

We live in an existential plane of ROYGBIV

It's not jocks vs. nerds

Or gay vs. straight

Or fat vs. skinny

To fall into confines that society has set around us would be self-sacrilege

So here's to those who rise above

Who not only break the mold

But turn it to dust

Who like boys or girls

Or boys and girls

Who know it's ok to do Calisthenics and Calculus

Who are confident as a size 2 or a size 22

Because there is more than one shade of pink or blue or green...

The whimsical red on a magazine cover starlet isn't the only red

The autumn orange that makes up a football jersey isn't the only orange

The sky blue emblem on an Ivy League acceptance letter isn't the only blue

So here's to those

Who embrace the many colors of the world
