"The Color of Life: Blood and Tears," is a collection of poems by Laura A. Fisher that were written between the years of 2008-2009. It has two chapters; in the first chapter the poems speak about different aspects of life. It speaks of life's structure, genuine happiness, love, slavery, and many other things. In the second chapter the poems speak about the painful aspects of life. It speaks of heartache, sadness, instability, slavery, death, and many other things. This book is part of my personal collection; other books include "Life, Love and Letting go" and "In the heart of a glass knight."
