The White Peacock

Flawed from birth
I lack all that makes my species
The celebrated symbol of proud regal beauty
My vibrant hues replaced by colorless white
A blank am I, awaiting some heavenly hand
To come with celestial crayons
And complete me
Paint me cerulean, olive, turquoise
Honey, indigo, violet

But if you can
Look past your expectations
And behold me
Imperfect as I stand
Mutation that I am
You will see

I am magnificent
