Life with colours

If I was really brave

I would do all the things

that I really want to do

and build my life with colours

that are my personal truths,

and tell all those dark ones

that cast their shadows of doubt

to shove it where the sun don’t shine

for I want to live my life sparkling

in the honesty of light.


But I am not that brave,

and so the colours

that might be found in truth,

in the brilliance of light’s gaze,

are instead somewhat grey,

somewhere between dark and light.
